I am unable to use a computer as it keeps getting a page fault stack dump for Explorer. The fault comes up first with pncrt.dll and then comctl32.dll. I think the latter is the on causing all the problems. I am unable to open any programs in Windows as a result.
I have narrowed it down to purhaps a program my partner downloaded or the fact the day it finally completely would not let him into any of his programs he changed the date to the year 2000. This had to be done as the clock has always been slow so it had not yet ticked over to the year 2000. (comuputers!! huh?!!)
The computer has always given me grief with a particular dll call mfc24.dll (I think it was called). I have coppied one from my computer to his several times. I only assumed that he has downloaded a program that has altered it.
Is there any quick fix or am I going to have to reload the operating system?
The computer was bought in 1996 but was the previouse years model on special. It then ran Windows95 and has since been upgraded to Windows98. I wonder if there could be a problem with the bios chip? It has done nothing but give me grief all these years!!
Any suggestions besides the obvious... get him a new machine... ???
