I get an access violation fault when I startup Iexplorer ver 5. Actually it will run up to a point when I try to go to a different web page. I have done many things to find the culprit. Including running sfc to see if there is a currupt system file. I have run the iexplorer fix program. Reinstalled IE. Loaded a clean version of the registry. Ran norton utilities and Virii checked. I'm at a total loss on this one. Here is the report from my crash protector..

Have you run the repair tool

Start
run
control panel
add new programs
ie5
repair.

Second, I would recommend an uninstall and a re-install.  When you re-install ensure that nothing is running in the enviornment, hit alt+control+del and leave only the systray and explorer running. (this advice is from another expert in a previous question and if it helps, I will award appropriatly).


Hope this helps.

twinkie, Try this to remove all the backup copies of registry and let it recreate a cleaner one by following methods.
(1) go to C:\windows\sysbckup folder. This is a system folder which may be visible if you have enabled to show all hidden files in start-settings-folder options-view tab.
     Search for all files with rb*.cab. There should be at least 5 rb*.cab.
     rb000.cab, rb001.cab, rb002.cab, rb003.cab, rb004.cab rb005.cab and any rbbad.cab

     Select all of them and remove to other "temporary or file-safe" directory for keeping the files to restore back to the C:\windows\sysbckup folder, if in case needed.

    Then, restart the computer to safe mode and then restart the computer for 3 times to normal mode.
     After that, shut down the computer for more than 20 sec. and start it again to command mode by pressing the CTRL key before the win98 logo appear. In the boot menu, select 5 and go to the command mode.
     At the C:\> prompt, type "scanreg /backup" without the quotation mark. Follow instruction and finished. Restart to the normal mode.
     When you go to search for the  C:\windows\sysbckup folder by window explorer, you'll find rb000.cab and/or rb001.cab will be recreated.
     Try to go to start-run, type "scanregw" without quotation mark. It will check the registry checker and try to backup one copy.

(2) Restart the computer and carry out routine work.
     Inspect the system for a few days if the error disappeared or not.

Let me know if you've any queries.    pslh

I am sure you are not going to like my answer, but I had the same problem, when I upgraded my Explorer 5.0 to 5.01. i have tried everything from the repair tool, to uninstalling and then reinstalling, and still had the same problem. So i just completely reinstalled win98, and then installed the 5.01 version without the problem of the urlmon.dll.

Good luck.

I found the fix to this last night. I guess I should
leave the question open a couple of days to see if
someone can grab the points??

And on the previous comment from pslh. Microsoft
stepped me through that process a few days ago
with the registry..

Listening for more, Twinkie123, since I had this same issue on two of our systems and fixed them using WindowsUdpate, selecting Show all installed, checking IE5 line and re-requesting the download (this when all else failed, including uninstall/reinstall which left us with IE4, then requiring the IE4 Patch, then the upgrade all in increments and still no resolve.  That WindowsUpdate process worked for us, so very interested in your fix.

Then running SFC after downloading the IE5 fixes.

To Hewittg: It's much easier than that. I'm not going to say though it wouldn't. That wasn't one of the things I did when trying different things..

To astaec: I take no credit for the fix. I found a similar problem with another
dll file that someone asked and it was answered or a suggestion. I'll have to check who gave the info on that question..

It was really quite simple. Considering I pulled my hair out for over a week and created a big mess (luckily I had a recent backup).

Here is what I did to fix the problem..

All I did was disable virtual memory. Restart win98 and then reenable it and restart again. I read a faq from microsoft about a similar problem with another dll file.. The faq has to do with a read only swp file. I don't think mine was. I was just grasping at straws when I disabled vm.

Someone posted a simialar question here and one of the experts had a comment on the virtual memory faq. I need to find who that was so I can get them these points..

It surprises me that urlmon would have anything to do with a swapfile issue; but then, always new things arise.

Have, though, had a corrupted swapfile where I rebooted to MS DOS, deleted the *.swp file, and rebooted to have it recreated.  

Interesting.

Thank you for posting the solution you found at your question.  I thought it would be good material for the Previously Asked Questions. To move it to the PAQ, I have zero'd the points on this question (refunded them) and accepted one of your comments as the answer.
