I am running a decent P4 2.8 w/512 mb ram on window 98 se, until recently all fine but after a windows critical update about a 4 days ago (KB891711) my computer is showing fatal exception errors- and they all vary in fashion. e.g. 0E has occurred at 0028:c1879641, or fatal exception 0D has occurred at 019F:BFF99B32. I have done some searches and these numbers are not showing up consistently enough for any quick solutions. My trail grew hot when i ran a window system's Dr. watson and it said that "windows KB891711 components has altered windows system files. module name KB891711.exe." Can anybody please let know what precautions i need to take in removing this d*** update. Or has anybody run into this problem before? :mad:

Ok i know this is solve but for information this kb891711 seemes to be a mistake of microsoft windows update :tazz: : it is not for win98 nor 98se but for xp as said in ms's database! Yet with windows update it advises win98se users to install it ;)
I had it, I uninstall it too, it should be said to all win98 users : DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE KB891711 !!!

Just FYI

Well, i said This KB was not suited for win 98 , because when searching it in ms's database there's no article for a kb891711 linked to win98 :
http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en
and
http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

It says there's only a KB891711 update for 2000, XP, NT server 4.0, 2003, Xp-64, and 2003-64.

So.... I dunno :tazz:

KB891711 created problems for me when I downloaded a couple of weeks ago. Ran across Geeks to Go and it has saved the day for me. Everything back to normal. I actually called Microsoft about this, but they were not helpful.

It absolutely is causing problems for some users, and I would defintely not install it, but it is nonetheless intended for users of windows 98.

I don't dispute it's a problem update, I am just saying that it was not a mistake.

The security breach is very real, and it does impact windows 98 users. That is my only point.

This also has conflict with Norton personal firewall ? I had to remove BOTH these entries from HKLM\..\..\runservices, to bring my system up.

has a conflict with MANY programs...it is an update to very critical windows files so it could impact a lot of programs....I had heard that a fully updated Norton was not having problems anymore (this patch came out March 8)

But, then I read about someone else who was still having problems

It seems very machine depenedent
