    I keep getting a error on a blue screen saying I have a fatal exception at 0028:c0005338 in VXD VMM (01) + 00004338

    I had VXD problems the other day and thought I had everything cleaned up and working. But it looks like they starting again. What should I do here? Any suggestions?

    Now, I went to download the free AVG virus scan version and I keep getting a error with that also. Saying: Zip file is damaged, truncated.... try again...... well, I've tried 3 times and get the same noticed. Any suggestions with this one? Thank you, Chara

    I would uninstall the viruscan and any recent installs. Delete temp files. Run regclean. Defrag. I would also run scanreg/fix from the dos prompt. Before putting the viruscan back on, try to recreate the problem. I would also suggest purchasing a good viruscan product with support.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for the info. I did the registry fix and it said that it repaired it. I did a disk scan and I defragged. Took around 3-4 hours to defrag. And I un-installed the anti virus that I had downloaded afew days ago before I did all that though like you said. But I tried to go and download AVG. anti virus from its sited and it said my Zip file was damaged, truncated... So how do I fix this problem so I can get a virus scan downloaded onto my computer? I feel alittle on the edge being online with NO virus protection. Thank you for all the help, Chara
