When you start your computer after upgrading to Windows 98, you may receive one or more of the following error messages:
Fatal Exception 0E at 0028:c028bac6 in VXD Vwin32(05)+0000281a

abnormal program termination.

You may also receive a series of "Invalid page fault" error messages in files with the ._ac extension.


This behavior can occur if your computer automatically starts the third- party Desktop Management Interface (DMI) Start utility.


To resolve this issue, contact the manufacturer of the DMIStart utility to inquire about the availability of a fix for this issue.

To work around this issue, disable the DMIStart utility:
  1. Restart the computer. Press and hold down the CTRL key until the Windows 98 Startup menu appears, and then choose Safe Mode.
  2. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Information.
  3. On the Tools menu, click System Configuration Utility.
  4. On the Startup tab, click to clear the check box next to DMIStart.
  5. Click OK. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.
