These problems have been occuring ever since yesterday afternoon. I run on Windows 98 2nd edition When I boot my computer, it will get to the desktop background picture, and then go into a blue screen. "Fatal exception 0E 0028:C02A20CC in VXD VWIN32(05) + 00000BF4" Two things will either happen after I press enter. 1) My computer will load my taskbar, desptop icons, and proceed to run as normal 2) My cursor will be an hourglass and nothing will load - I will just see my desktop background picture. During the times that I am succesfull in loading my computer, I notice "Explorer" is missing from the close programs dialog box.
