  1. Whenever I disconnect from the internet (installed using an ISP cd-rom)I get the following error message:-

    An expection 0E has occured at 0028:1604423 in VXD—. This was called from 0028:c15769A0 in VxD, it may be possible to continue normally.

  2. The exception error I specified earlier has just recently happened. I’m using windows 98 and the ISP I am using is called Tiscali.

  3. I’d contact the ISP to ensure that you have the latest software from them compatible with Win98. I’d also check to ensure that you have the latest drivers for your modem or network, as well as visiting Windows Update for Win98 itself.

  4. at startup message”can’t find a device file that may be needed. System ini file refers to this file. Suggests the software I uninstalled previoulsy be uninstalled through control panel which is what I had done before message occurred. It’s ipvnmon.vxd file. I’m assuming a driver from an ISP software downloaded online.

  5. Hello.
    I’m running Office 2010 Pro Plus and Outlook has suddenly, for some unknown reason, stopped displaying my meetings/appointments in the Calendar pane of Outlook Today. I have tried all I know to rectify this, including running ‘Repair’ from the installation disc. I can use the To-Do Bar as an alternative, but I must have done something to cause this glitch… if only I knew what!! Would reinstalling Outlook be a good thing to try? Your advice & guidance would be gratefully received!
