    Does anyone have any ideas or clues as to what the following blue screen message refers to? This is on a Win98SE computer.

    "A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 1128:C29AE384 in VXD PCIMP (01) + 00001C24. The current application will be terminated."

    This is occuring on a church computer, and I haven't been able to raise anything about this particular code. I have to admit that I'm not exactly an expert on blue screen messages. Any input would be appreciated.

    the code is rarely helpful, that's just the memory address where a program failed. A better approach is to minimize startup programs by going to start/run/msconfig/startup, maybe run a virus and spyware scan. If you can relate the error to the installation of new hardware or software, remove or reinstall whatever caused the problem. More information would also help:
    -can you reproduce the error?
    -does it always happen in a particular program?
    -any other details
