  1. I just felt the need to explain to my fiance that I'm at the Pit right now cuz it's in the best interest of our computer's health that I try to find answers to solve the problem we've been having. Well, it IS true! I haven't been to the Pit forum in ages, mostly because I spent the majority of my time here instead of doing things I should have been doing. I've missed everyone here. Uh oh, I'm being hailed away from the computer. Gotta go!
  2. Thanks for the link, pacman. I'll check it out. No, Mouse, I didn't get anything with the computer. I don't happen to have any Windows 98 disks, either. The computer has 3GB or more memory. Should I just upgrade to Windows XP? I have the disks for that.
  3. We recently acquired an old PC. It's a Compaq Presario 2250 with Windows 98. It has problems, and I'm trying to get the thing running smoothly again. I know that it has spyware and I wouldn't rule out a virus either. Anyway, when I try to shut down the computer, I get the following message on the infamous blue screen: A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C02A0948 in VXD VWIN32(05) + 000012D0 What does that mean? Is there anything I can do about it? Should I bother to continue trying to clean up this computer? Thank you.
