STIMON caused an invalid page fault or Sticpl.cpl Error
Problem: When you connect your USB camera to your Windows 98 computer, an error that says “STIMON caused an invalid page fault” is displayed. When you access ‘Scanners’ from the Control Panel and select the camera in the window, an error with Sticpl.cpl is displayed.
Cause: The Stimon.exe file on your PC is damaged.
Solution: Press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] and check if Stimon is running. If it is, end the task. Delete the file from C:\Windows\System\ (where C:\ is the drive Windows is loaded on). Run the Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion. Look for a value named “StillImageMonitor” under either the “Run” or “RunServices” keys. Delete the value and restart the PC. Now reinstall the drivers for the USB camera. If you still get an error, replace the Sticpl.cpl file as well. To do this, run “sfc” from Start > Run and insert the Windows 98 installation disk. Select the option ‘Extract one file from installation disk’ and click Browse. Locate Sticpl.cpl in the ..\Windows\System\ folder and click Start. Restart the machine after restoring the file.
