Unexpected page fault error

Recently, when win 98 boots, I have been getting an error message Explorer failed and details gives long page fault info.  So far as I know I have changed nothing in my system and as I work there seems to be no later difficulty with Explorer.  However something is going on and I would like suggestions for reparing this boot error.

If yiu need further info let me know.

Thanks for your help

Lew, there's nothing to correct! Your only changing your view when Windows Explorer opens! When you click on "New", you should see "folder" and "shortcut", a thin gray line, and then a list of the last 10 or 15 areas that you have been using lately, such as a text document, word document, zip file etc. This is normal "unless you change your view" from classic to web page.

Take out the SCSI controller card and check the problem again.

Please give more details of the error message:

Blue screen with white characters? Or a Windows type box? In other words,how far in the boot process do you get before receiving it?

Please post the words (can leave out the numbers for now),especially any 'Modules'.

I can no longer reproduce the error message.  Now my boot continues normally but, when I open windows explorer and click on new I get not only the folder, shortcut options but a long list of file types to open AND moving to folder closes the window.  Folder works normally with the keyboard shortcut f.

The error message was a normal windows message with the red x not a blue screen.

Thanks for your attention to this problem.

Lew, it looks as though either intentionally or unintentionally some of your explorer options have been modified. You can change what is being viewed either by modifying through "view" in windows explorer or by changing the desktop features.
