I am frequently getting the following crashes:

EXPLORER caused a general protection fault module <unknown> at 0000:0000093d.

It is not isolated to EXPLORER, it can happen in any application.  It usually happens when accessing a drop down menu, the menu gets about half drawn then there is 1-2 seconds of intense disk acitivity and the crash occurs.  The
location of the crash is always around the 93d area, between about 93d and 977.  I have included a list of crashes below.

It also happens a lot in Netscape when displaying pictures, but once again is not isolated to Netscape.  The problem seems to have been somewhat lessened by switching off all graphics accerleration in the control pannel.

Any sugestions will be greatfuly recieved.
Cheers,
Mike Bullock

Try a different resolution (ie 16 colors instead of 256) .Also check to see if there are updated video drivers for your Video Card. If that doesn't work try reseating you SIMMs or swapping their positions. Usually GPF's are related to damaged  or out-dated video drivers or Memory. You didn't mention that you recently added any hardware so I will assume you didn't.
