I had the same problems and they seemed to go away for the most part once I went to firefox. I occasionally get a fatal error still. I think it has something to do with drivers loaded on your machine. My problems started once I download microsofts new security pack - it seemed to cause more problems than anything else!
Using Windows 98SE and IE version that came with the computer (bought in Oct '99). The only new software loaded prior to this happening was going to a wireless broadband connection. Computer mainly used for browsing and e-mail through Compuserve, and storage of photos (which was been done well before current problems)
I think I may give up on IE and go to Firefox etc. but in case there is a simple fix.....
I receive the following error message in Explorer:
"This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists contact the program vendor".
If I click on the Details button I get the following:
"Explorer caused an invalid page fault in module MSVCRT.DLL at 017F:780154A7 Registers: EAX=7803A152 CS=017FEIP=780154A7 EFLGS=00010212 EBX=00000010 SS=0187 ESP=0145c754 EBP+0145c764 ECX=0fffffff ES=0187 EDI=0145c79e GS=0000 bytes at CS:EIP: 66 8b 04 48 a8 04 74 5b 83 cl d0 3b cb 73 7b 83 stack dump: 0145c808 70a9f33b 00000000 00000000 0145c7c0 7801540c 0145c79c 00000000 0000000f 00000000 63713aa9 0145c79c 00000000 00000010 00000001 63713c10"
On closing this error box I then get another with the
"An error has occurred in Internet Explorer. Internet
Explorer will now close. If you continue to experience
problems please restart your computer".
This has been occuring for some time but lately has become more frequent. It seems to occur in certain websites (eg e- mail) more often than other
I have tried Stinger, CWShredder, Ad-Aware, SpyBot etc. And I have read several pages of posts already and there are some similar problems as mine but nothing is described as exactly like mine.
Any help appreciated,
