Common PC Error Messages

Fatal exception error
Fatal exception errors are codes that are returned by a program in the following cases:
• Access to an illegal instruction has been encountered 
• Invalid data or code has been accessed 
• The privilege level of an operation is invalid 

When any of these cases occurs, the processor returns an exception to the operating system, which in turn is handled as a fatal exception error. In many cases the exception is non-recoverable and the system must either be restarted or shut down, depending upon the severity of the error.

Illegal operation error
An application has experienced instability due to some type of error. This could also be caused by some other application interacting with the error producing program.
