Hello,
Re: WIN98SE
I got this Fatal Exception message and after clicking some key everything
seemed to be okay again. However this fatal exception showed up after each
PC startup.
So I (1st class layman) decided to perform a new Win98/Setup by installing
the Win98 CDRom and Clicking Setup. (the check lasts about 30 min)
However the Fatal Exception kept showing up.

Then I found out that two files: msltus40.dll and msjter40.dll could not be
found and the warning read: the system might not function properly.
These files appeared to be related to CAB.35 and must be present in
C:\Windows\System.
These files were present at this location, however both mentioned an endless
list of errors.
My attempts ended up by:abort, failed, try again.

I once received an instruction about an inplace reinstall: start from floppy
and when A:\> appears, type: CD Drive letter:\> , dir/w and setup, all
followed by ENTER
This attempt ended up in abort, failed, try again as well.

In the meantime we had a very strong indication that the CDPlayer itself was
out of order. This afternoon a new one will be installed (not by me !)
The Win98 CDROM is okay, as it works at the other network PC.

Moreover, someone suggested to do as follows: start from floppy and type
G:\Win98\Setup when A:\> appears. Well actually that's the end of this
instruction.
After typing G:\Win98\Setup, I again get: Abort, failed.

So actually I cannot startup my PC anymore.
The attempts to repair do fail and the usual startup ends with an Fatal
exception, while clicking some key nomore continues the Windows Startup, but initiates some loop.

If you know a solution, please send your instructions as detailed as
possible.

Many, many thanks in advance,

A.Ruiter

Go here and install Microsoft Jet 4.0 SP8, then reboot.

There's no need to run Windows setup and reinstall Windows, just because you're getting an error message. If the reinstall goes bad, you'll be in even worse shape.

Yesterday evening a new CDRom player has een installed. We started the PC in order to click "find new hardware"

The PC showed the menu NORMAL and SAFE MODE (e.a.) , I clicked NORMAL, then performs the usual startup steps, such as Windows Logo, AVG virus check, black startup screens PC info (white font), Windows screen again inclusive of waving bar at the bottom.

However then again the procedure ends, saying "Fatal exception"
Clicking CRTL + ALT + DEL offers the possibility to click "some key" which brings back the black screen (with or without blinking cursor) and after waiting a little moment the PC starts up again and ends with Fatal Error.

Do you know of any PC-friendly options ?

Thanks in advance
Regards,
Adriaan

PS. I have visited the MS webpage but did not dare to perform
the download without you knowing the above situation.

Error in one of the last sentences:
Not Fatal Error but Fatal Exception.
