    Various times trying to go on stand-by, restarting or shutting down, I get messages Fatal Exception OE or Explorer caused illegal operation , caused general protection fault.

    One Example:
    Trying to go on stand-by, message shows up: Pwr Management cannot go on stand-by because a program or device driver wont allow it. Close all programs and try again. [OK]....No programs open that I can see. ctrl/alt/delete shows Explorer / Mgavrte are running. I highlight Explorer...[end task] [shut down] [cancel] Clikd end task. Option to restart? [YES]. Computer stalls on...Windows is shutting down screen. so I wait a bit, then have to hold pwr button to shut down. Wait a bit more then power back up. After restarting I get Fatal Exception OE has occured at 0028:FF05BB1F in VXDHPUATA (01) + 000021DF. The current application will be terminated. press any key to return to windows.

    or

    Pwr management cannot go on stand-by cause a program or device driver wont allow it. Close all programs and try again. [OK]...No programs open that I can see. Clikd start button then restart [YES] computer stalls on Windows is shutting down screen. Hold pwr button to shut down. Upon restart I get message....Explorer has caused illegal operation....general protection fault in module USER.EXE at 000f : 000015ce and lists 4 or 5 registers.

    I am running (as you can tell already) Win98SE with 191MB RAM on intel celeron processor. Resources are usually between 60% and 85% free, on restart resources are over 90% free.

    I have tried different sites and found nothing with exact problems, or tried different fixes and none helped yet. Do I need items running on start-up? I have all turned off to try fix these problems.

    One time, just to see, after restarting, I used ctrl/alt/delete and it showed explorer was running, but I could not see that it was. How can a program be running when you dont see it running?

    Thanx for any help in this matter.

    What about not going on stand by, and disabling APM altogether?
    Your computer can certainly handle it.

    I used to have problems waking up from standby, and
    unable to find a solution, I disabled APM.

    Everything runs absolutely perfectly now.

    Greetz,

    And you do need a couple of things starting up automatically, if only these two: Explorer and ScanRegistry.


    The former is the core of Windows, and without it nothing much happens.
    The second automatically scans the system registry for invalid entries and empty data blocks when it is started. If invalid registry entries are detected, it automatically restores a previous day's backup.

    And you'll have something recent to revert to, should your registry get irreparably corrupted because of something going disastrously wrong.

    Greetz,

    Thanx Tony,

    I will try that, but problems arent exclusive of APM or stand-by, just that is where I notice it the most.

    I will enable those 2 items on start-up. Maybe thats is all that is wrong.

    Thanx again
