    Unhappy Fatal Exception Error IE 5.5 Please Help

    Can anyone tell me what this error message means. When I am in IE 5.5 it has started crashing and giving this error message. I am on Xtra Broadband and Windows 98 SE.

    Microsoft Fatal Exception error 0028:C1683436 inVXD AFVXD(01) + 00004B46

    Wow. Google yielded nothing. Is IE6 available for Windows 98SE users? If this issue persists, I suggest you to make the switch to Firefox; it is much more stable and nicer.

    Thanks to those who have replied so far.
    I am wondering if this could be a Registry problem?

    No, it'll be something else crashing it.

    You could try IE 6 SP1

    It shouldnt take too long with broadband, depending on what options u select.

    Or try Firefox, or Opera.

    Changing the browser wont necessarily cure the problem, that would be a last resort, though it should be updated any way, together with any security updates.

    These fatal exception errors can be difficult to pin point. In this case afvxd.vxd is a network driver, I think associated with Dial Up Networking, DUN.

    I'd be inclined to go to Control Panel-Network-Configuration, and see if Dial Up Networking adapter is installed. If so uninstall it, as it is not needed with a broadband router. I'm not sure if DUN is needed if you have a USB modem.

    Another thing to try is to extract a fresh copy of afvxd.vxd using System File Checker, you will need the win98 CD, or to have the win98 from that CD on your hard drive.

    This is what MS say about fatal exception errors, but I've never found it of any use

    Here is the MS page for updates:

    You can get IE 6 and updates here:

    Stay with it. The simplest answer, as I see it, is to click Msinfo32 in the Sart/Run icon then click tools on Msinfo32's toolbar, then click the first drop down option - "Repair Internet Explorer". Sit back, follow the instructions and wait for repair....

    Also to Terry
    I have a Dial Up Adapter and a TCP Dial Up Adapter under Control Panel/Network/Configuration.
    The problem is only intermittent.
    Do you think I need to clean my Registry?
    My Microsoft Updates are up to date
    I have extensively searched Microsoft Knowledge Base but couldn't find my exact error message.
