Win32hlp.exe Crashing....

Win32hlp.exe crashes when I go into certain parts of Visual Basic 4.0 Help and Oracle Objects for OLE Help as well as several other help files.  I can consistently get it to do this when I choose "Default Printer" in the Visual Basic On-Line Help (32 bit) 4.0 Search.  I've also had it do it to me in Visual C/C++ 1.52c when I went into the "TextOut" function.  

Anyone have any ideas?

How much memory is installed in your computer?
 
Are you using a memory manager or EMM386?
 
How much memory and resources are shown in Control Pannel > SYSTEM > Performance.
 
I suspect the problem is related to a memory configuration problem as I have seen it happen before with the HELP stuff in Access.
 
When you give some answers to the above I will possibly be able to advise better.
