Vetta71:
To resolve this problem, determine which .cpl file is damaged, remove the file, and then reinstall it. To do so, follow these steps:  

 

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.

2. In the Named box, type "*.cpl" (without quotation marks).

3. In the Look In box, type "c:\windows\system" (without quotation marks).

4. Click Find Now.

5. Double-click one of the .cpl files. If the file is damaged, an invalid page fault occurs in Kernel32.dll. If an invalid page fault does not occur, repeat this step with each .cpl file until an invalid page fault occurs. The file that causes the error message to be displayed is the file that is damaged.

6. On the File menu in the Find window, click Close.

7. Delete or rename the damaged .cpl file in the Windows\System folder.

8. Open Control Panel to verify that it is functioning properly.

9. Extract a new copy of the .cpl file you removed in step 7 from your original Windows disks or CD-ROM.

Invalid Page Fault in Kernel32.dll Errors
If you frequently receive Invalid Page Fault in Kernel32.dll Errors, from different drivers (Explorer, Guide.exe, Msgsrv32, Commgr32, Mprexe and others), it is possible that your password list file is damaged. Try re-creating your password list file:
1.In Windows Explorer select your \Windows folder
2.Press F3. This will bring up the Find: All Files window
3.In the Named: box type *.pwl
4.Click Find Now
5.When a list of found files is displayed, delete them all
6.Close the Find window and restart Windows

Note: you will lose any passwords you have stored, so make sure that you have the passwords written down so you can re-enter them when needed

Just a note.

Have your cleared you cache files.  One could be corrupt.

I think everyone else has covered all avenues of approach minus the cpl approach (was wondering about that to).

Hope it helps.

From IE, click on tools, then internet options, then on the General tab, click on the "clear history", also check the "delete files" under temporary internet files.

Then go into Windows Explorer and into Windows, then clear everything in the "Temporary Internet Folder"
