Unidentified "Fatal exception 0E" during reboot

Here it is - I have been getting the BSOD with the following message:

"A fatal exception 0E hass occurred at 0028:050A050A. The current application will be terminated."

I'll then hit the "any" key and the desktop re-appears, but there are no icons, the mouse cursor is visible but the mouse is frozen, and there is no response to any keyboard input. I must press the Reset button, and it usually re-starts just fine - no Scandisk required.

The pattern seems to be that this happens any time I either install new software that requires a reboot to fully activate it, or if I apply any software update, including MS updates via the web.

I have searched the MS KB, reading every article related to a "fatal exception 0E". NONE of them references the line "0028:050A050A". Web searches also come up empty.

This is a new PC I have assembled -

ABIT KT-7A mobo with Athlon XP 1800+ (latest VIA drivers)
384 MB 133 SDRAM (matched set)
Dual OS setup with Windows 98SE and Windows XP Home
(Note: Windows XP seems to be unaffected by this)
ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 7500
Maxtor 60 GB HDD, 5 partitions, all FAT32

All of the software I have installed is the same as I had installed on my prior PC and that PC is still running fine In fact, there is still a lot of software I haven't installed! Any ideas anyone?
