Total Exception OE & STIMON

  Carronade 12:26 27 Apr 03

I haven't made any changes recently to my software but have started getting a blue screen at Start-up with the message "Total Exception OE @ 0167:BFF9DFFF" which can lead to an error message regarding "STIMON - invalid page fault in module USER.EXE at 0001:000003d2". Less often STIMON stops the system closing down properly. STIMON I traced to the Windows\System folder and it has a scanner/camera icon beside it. I use W98SE, updated from the Microsoft website, and for over a year have had two scanners, Plustek OpticPro U24 and Canon D660U linked up along with Fuji digital camera software.

Help will be appreciated.

Re my query, above, I read per a response to Tigerlily's "error message" to run SFC. This brought up SETUPX.DLL as corrupt. Not knowing if it was the original or an update, I clicked on the first option instead of the second "replace with original", ran SFC again and got an (apparently) clean report - no faults.

I would still appreciate a reply. Now to close down and start up a few times.
