Whenever I try and play the Solitare game that came with Win/98, all that happens when I open the game is this pop up. Any suggestions ? / Win 98/ IE 6.0.

SOL caused a general protection fault

I have neither installed, Bonzai Buddy etc. or Office XP, neither one is on this PC or ever has been. I only have Win98, 1st edition and IE 6.0. I'm stumped.

The issues found with Bonzai Buddy and OfficeXP (don't you find either annoying?) may not be your issue, but offer insight that other software can cause the issue.

I could go research the possible softwares that can do this and keep asking if you have this or that, but I'm not going to. Its your task to reveal all the software that you installed and then maybe some one will point out which was the toxic combo. I know an issue existed with a common firewall and the card games for some time. In that case, the firewall could be uninstalled since on Windows 95/98/ME there is no exploit known (hint, the firewall is not saving anyone on these OSes) for 95/98/ME if there is no network shares, OS updated and no servers running.

Again, I can't list all the possibilities since there are too many, but you must be PEST/PARASITE free since many of these bugs (which are not detected with your antivirus) cause such failures. Here's the usual:

My policy needle on the pest-meter is pegged at zero tolerance. I eject all that these five tools find. notes the five scanning tools and removal tools that are fairly safe. If one does encounter an issue, its always been damage done by the MALWARE. The most common issue being Layered Service Provider replacement which you can use LSPFIX (Hint: use to find).

The thread has follow on discussions about new links if you don't want to use Google to find an item.

PPS. All the tools are free.

The culprit has been found..and it's Zonealarm.
So if I shut the Zonealarm off, the Solitare works just fine everytime. Thanks for the heads up advice.

I have had simillar issues. Do not give-up on Zone Alarm all together. 1)My suggestion would be to disconnect from internet. 2) Go into Zone Alarm "Program Control" "Programs". 3) Write down prog names and the Green/Red/Questin marks. 4) Right click on suspects and change them to question marks. 5) Open Solitare and when Zone alarm prompts, "Allow" and "Remember". 6) Change Zone "Program Control" settings back the way you found it with the exception of the setting you just changed. gb
