Often but not always, after I've selected "close" and am trying to power-off my laptop, this message appears and the machine hangs:

A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0177:BFF9DBA7. The current application will be terminated. Press any key to terminate. Press Control/Alt/Delete to restart. Press any key to continue."

Machine does not respond when CTL/ALT/DEL is pressed. Ditto for pressing any/every key. I have to turn the power off. Then of course when I restart, I get an error message for improperly shutting down.

What does this error message mean and how do I fix the underlying problem(s)?

Running Windows 98 on IBM thinkpad.

THX as ever.

Try this: look in Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and see if you can find "Kb891711" and uninstall it if present. It's a security update that sometimes causes problems. It's a matter of choosing between a possible vulnerability and keeping the system running.
