     wExceptionHandler will let your application be near-bullet proof from crashing for unhandled errors because of bad subclassers, windows GPF's and any other unhandled exceptions. This will get the description of the exception caused, allow you to resume executing/running your application if an unhandled exception is thrown and shows you a dialog with some debug information about the exception whcih you could email to the developer etc. I decided to post this almost a year ago but didnt get around to doing it but after ( Barden did I decided i'll upload mine too... I must give credit to Jonathan Lunman who wrote a ( Article(Not from MSDN Mag as i thought)a few years back(1999) which is where this code is inspired/backboned by and thank-you to Vlad Vissoultchev for pointing this out:)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
