A fatal exception of OE has occured at 0167:00000013. The current application will be terminated.

When i hit enter, they system reboots itself, and the whole thing repeats itself, regadless of startup mode. Can anyone help? BTW, I am running windows 98se. Thanks

Reformating your drive will not help if you clone off your old drive. All you will do is carry over your problems.

Use another system to download and burn to a CD the drivers you need for M/B and devices or just for the NIC or Modem. Do a clean install of Win98, install your drivers from CD or net,do a full security update. Install and update an anti-virus application.

Provided that their is no hardware problems your O/S is clean with no problems. NOW slave that corrupt drive to the clean system, scan for spy-ware/virus and transfer your data to the new drive. From Windows format the slave drive so it is clean. This drive can be placed in another system or used for extra storage.

Three notes;
1. Your existing O/S is corrupted to an extent that recovery is not possible. Stop trying to recover it.

2.Check your version of IE. IE 4 will not access the internet and if it does you will get all kinds of error messages.

3. To quote another member:
"Hard Drives are temporary storage only. If you want to keeep your data Back it Up and transfer to CD's".
