Does anyone have any idea about this one:

A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0028:C027E799 in VXD VMM (06) + 00002799. (...)

This computer is running Windows 98 SE on a Microstar MS-6278 mainboard, Pentium 2.4 GHz, 256 MB RAM. I currently have two users set up and we use Microsoft Family Logon for switching. Usually after four-five switches between the two users, I get the above error when logging off and have to restart the computer (soft reset when possible, but sometimes hard reset is necessary, and sometimes scandisk is subsequently initiated upon booting). Also, sometimes the error happens when I press the Windows button on the keyboard.

Thanks,

Ivan

If you can't find your exact numbers, try the solutions to similar "VXD
VMM (06)" articles that seem easy to do first. Then try the harder ones.
Do you have any red/yellow ?/!'s in Device Manager?

Yeah, I've gotten a couple of hits for "0028:C027E799" in google newsgroups, but that didn't really help me out. As for other VMM (06) errors - people get them in all kinds of situations, most of which don't apply to this case. I haven't been able to find anything very helpful.

One thing I'll try is reverting the DLL swap (I do use the IE 5.5 browseui.dll and browselc.dll in C:\Windows\System). I doubt that will be the casue of the probem, but who knows?

If you have 2 sticks of RAM,
take each one out in turn
to eliminate the possibility of bad RAM.

If you only have one stick, perhaps you can
temporarily borrow one from another PC?

Uhuh. That is a tough one. Colorado is always looking for peccadilloes
about those .dll swap & surely would have bellowed to wake the dead were
THEY the cause. Still, may as well put them right so that you may do an
IE Repair, maybe even an over-install of IE.

I guess, even... close all open windows, & "START, Run, DxDiag" for a
possible message.

Fatal Exception 0E errors in the 0028 address segment are often
associated with video driver problems.

Try updating your video drivers with the latest Widnows 98 version
from the video card manufacturer's web site.

Good luck

It seems I've found a workaround for the problem. The workaround is, instead of going through the Start Menu and logging off, to create a shortcut on the desktop that executes the logoff through the following command:

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 0

This way (at least based on what I can tell so far), I do not get the blue screens.

I have not tried reverting the .dll swap or updating video card drivers because I'm lazy. I think my RAM is OK, but I might test with memtest (I only have one piece of 256 MB).

Uhuh. That is a tough one. Colorado is always looking for peccadilloes
about those .dll swap & surely would have bellowed to wake the dead were
THEY the cause. Still, may as well put them right so that you may do an
IE Repair, maybe even an over-install of IE.

I guess, even... close all open windows, & "START, Run, DxDiag" for a
possible message.

OK, I have

(1) updated the graphic card drivers (nVIDIA GeForce MX 440)
(2) tested my RAM with memtest - no errors, as expected

That still didn't eliminate the issue. Now I've reverted the .dll swap. However, the problem still happens (same blue screen, same error, seems like the exact same symptoms). Explorer is terrible with those IE 6 .dll's, even small delete/move operations are evidently more sluggish than with the IE 5.5 SP2 .dll's. (Any news on this issue, by the way - cquirke, Rick?)

I'm not sure cquirke saw you post though Ivan. I just now did notice it
myself down here in the June section since your last post today showed up
to me as a unread post - I've flagged it now.

Your last question answered first is that there is no new news on W98xIE6x
file delete hang issue yet. The only thing I can say is that a report
submission about it that was sent to MS in April is still marked Active,
that may not mean much but most other ones from April are now marked
closed. Feel free to send in your submission about it ..squeaky wheel gets
the grease :)  I just put up a webpage about the problem though:
http://www.ptcnh.net/~rdchauvin/W98xIE6xBug.htm

As far as your VXD error
When did it start happening?
Was there a time when you did not have that problem?
Can you remember all the things you did the moment it stated happening?

It may not be it at all and this may be OT, maybe not, depending on your
answers to any of my questions, but as far as your MX 440 card goes I
would suggest to use near to the original drivers that came with it, and
importantly not go beyond Version 53.04 drivers for it since everything
thereafter is useless to it, and in some cases causes problems with those
older chipsets. What version video drivers are you using? One thing is
for certain at this point depending how you previously installed and/or
updated your video drivers, especially ! if you ever swapped the actual
video card out? ...at any rate if so then you would now go to Add/Remove
and uninstall your video drivers completely, reboot, let it assume the
stock W98SE video driver via DM, (bear with me - going from memory now)
choose list all drivers, but at one of those selections there it needs to
show that it want's to use the Oeminfo.ini from the System folder (which
will show up if the nvidia drivers are not present yet) anyway the
Oeminfo.ini is the info it needs and is the stock W98SE drivers for your
card ...and after it takes them and your screen comes back up stock and
generic, then is the time you would then install you new video drivers
v53.04 ..and you can get them from this page here:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win9x_53.04.

The purpose of the clean install video card method I outlined above is to
make sure you have no conflicts with your video memory allocations in the
wrong place or erroneously duplicated from improper video card swaps which
can cause those errors, by removing them all and re-assimilating anew
....but again, at this point it's just a guess by me mentioning the above
procedure which much depends on your answers to my '5' question marks of
inquiries throughout.

Gosh Ivan sorry for another typo ..as I was eating lunch I almost fell off
my chair when it dawned on me what I typed before for that filename saying
oeminfo.ini, sorry, that's nOt at all the filename I meant to say.
Actually forget the filename and just point it to the Standard Display
Types and then Standard VGA Adapters at that point and it'll find it and
let it assume that.. msdisp.inf or something like that.... and then all
as I said before... but just remember this video issue may be a long shot
anyway.

Here's an interesting thing. The two user profiles I have set up have different desktop wallpapers. When I log off, and want to switch to the other user (I use Microsoft Family Logon), the wallpaper has to change. When I have the IE 5.5 SP2 .dll's, the screen just changes. With the IE 6 SP1 .dll's, the screen briefly flashes black before changing. Weird, huh?

Hmm. Colorado will be interested, I'm sure, as he is compiling a list of
peccadilloes about those .DLLs. User Profiles are a thing I avoid,
fearing Registry & HDD bloat. Still, even without it, I have seen some
kind of icon/maybe wallpaper dance going on during boot that may not
have been there before IE6. It doesn't seem to be serious. Perhaps turn
off Active Desktop...

(1) Undo Active Desktop.

(a) R-Clk the Desktop, point to Active Desktop,
& select Customize my Desktop.
(b) Uncheck "View my Active Desktop as a WEB page" & Apply.

Is there anything in the box under that item? Those are WEB sites that
would appear on the Desktop. Delete them.

(c) At the Effects tab, uncheck "Hide icons when the Desktop is viewed
as a WEB page" & OK.
(d) R-Clk the Desktop, & uncheck "View as WEB page".

(2) "START, Settings, Folder Options, General tab". Set to "Classic
style". If all gets better, click "Custom...", & gingerly go back to how
you like it. But stay away from "Enable all Web related content...".

Rick, thanks for your reply. I'm out heading out until Sunday, but will check into the drivers thing when I get back. The new drivers already seem to be giving me some trouble, such as yellow shading on some pop-up icons (for example, the "i" icon that's displayed when a spell check is complete in OE)

I'm not sure cquirke saw you post though Ivan. I just now did notice it
myself down here in the June section since your last post today showed up
to me as a unread post - I've flagged it now.

Your last question answered first is that there is no new news on W98xIE6x
file delete hang issue yet. The only thing I can say is that a report
submission about it that was sent to MS in April is still marked Active,
that may not mean much but most other ones from April are now marked
closed. Feel free to send in your submission about it ..squeaky wheel gets
the grease :)  I just put up a webpage about the problem though:
http://www.ptcnh.net/~rdchauvin/W98xIE6xBug.htm

As far as your VXD error
When did it start happening?
Was there a time when you did not have that problem?
Can you remember all the things you did the moment it stated happening?

It may not be it at all and this may be OT, maybe not, depending on your
answers to any of my questions, but as far as your MX 440 card goes I
would suggest to use near to the original drivers that came with it, and
importantly not go beyond Version 53.04 drivers for it since everything
thereafter is useless to it, and in some cases causes problems with those
older chipsets. What version video drivers are you using? One thing is
for certain at this point depending how you previously installed and/or
updated your video drivers, especially ! if you ever swapped the actual
video card out? ...at any rate if so then you would now go to Add/Remove
and uninstall your video drivers completely, reboot, let it assume the
stock W98SE video driver via DM, (bear with me - going from memory now)
choose list all drivers, but at one of those selections there it needs to
show that it want's to use the Oeminfo.ini from the System folder (which
will show up if the nvidia drivers are not present yet) anyway the
Oeminfo.ini is the info it needs and is the stock W98SE drivers for your
card ...and after it takes them and your screen comes back up stock and
generic, then is the time you would then install you new video drivers
v53.04 ..and you can get them from this page here:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win9x_53.04.

The purpose of the clean install video card method I outlined above is to
make sure you have no conflicts with your video memory allocations in the
wrong place or erroneously duplicated from improper video card swaps which
can cause those errors, by removing them all and re-assimilating anew
....but again, at this point it's just a guess by me mentioning the above
procedure which much depends on your answers to my '5' question marks of
inquiries throughout.

Rick

...if you can, certainly always make a partition image backup when changing
around software's - especially video card swaps, etc; nothing beats having

I'm probably gonna have to take back that thing about the .dll's causing different behaviours of the screen at log off / log on - it seems the change of behavior has more to do with the updated graphics card driver...

Here's an interesting thing. The two user profiles I have set up have different desktop wallpapers. When I log off, and want to switch to the other user (I use Microsoft Family Logon), the wallpaper has to change. When I have the IE 5.5 SP2 .dll's, the screen just changes. With the IE 6 SP1 .dll's, the screen briefly flashes black before changing. Weird, huh?

That's a disappointment. Intermittent errors are really tough. Maybe do
a Thorough Scandisk & Defrag. Also, run a RAM & HDD tester...

Hi Rick,
well, actually, that problem with the coloring is gone now, and the updated drivers seem to be no worse generally than the older ones, so I guess I won't bother restoring. I could do uninstall via Add/Remove also, in this case.
As for partition image backup... I know I should, I guess I'm too lazy, and so far I haven't gotten a case where, at worst, I'd have to restore the registry to an earlier state. I do back things up once in a while, though.
Thanks,
Ivan
