illegal opperations.....

Both my browsers IE3 and Netscape display the message:
"you have performed an illegal opperation and your programme will be terminated" or some thing like that.
This is happening like every ten mins on line.
Help!!!

1. What's your system's configuration?
2. Did you try to reinstall those programs?
3. Are you running any other apps along with the browsers?

Hi there
The Netscape browser is 202 Gold.

THe explorer is 302. IE 4 made me format. I think the problems I'm having have stemmed from the format.
Here are the last two error messages :

Suggestion 1.:

Try to cleanup your registry by using RegClean from Microsoft. You can get it on www.microsoft.com. This will check your registry and remove illigal entry if there is some.

Suggestion 2.:
Run scandisc. This will find error on your harddisk. If there is crosslinked files or other error in vital files, you probably have to reinstall. Win95. Do this by choosing normal Win95 setup and then choose reinstall. defect files.
