Out of nowhere while online, a fatal exception occurred. When I press any key to continue, the computer shuts down entirely. When I boot up again, it begins to load windows, and just before it's complete, the fatal exception returns forcing another shutdown.

When I was able to restart the PC, I used F1 during the boot restoring defaults, and it got me loaded & running for a time. I ran a windows update and antivirus update and was forced to restart to install. After restarting the same thing happened, it just wants to reboot and / or shut down. Windows 98se was also running slower after all this occurred.

Here's the error message:
Windows
Fatal Exception has occurred at
0028:c003635B in
VXD IFSMGR(01) + 00002997
press any key
(of course when I do I enter the black whole) appreciate any thoughts!

Boot into Safe Mode, (tap F8 five times per second during a restart; Choose option number three (3) in the Windows Startup dialog box using the arrow keys below the Delete key, and strike the Enter key; Click Ok when prompted). Run your virus scan in there.

Get this shutdown patch here as soon as you can get on-line:
