im having problem with my Windows98SE.
everytime i click on the "My Computer" icon to bring up my windows explorer it gives me the following error :

EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0187:bff87ede.

This happens to my internet explorer too when i use it browse my local drive or whenever my IE tries to open a new pop-up browser window from a webpage link.

Does anyone knows how can i solve this problem and why does it happens? I cant recall what have i done to my windows that triggers this problem. Pls help.

I would run system file checker from the start/run command(SFC)
Have you CD ready and let it check and replace changed files, look at the version numbers and let it keep or install the newer


Here is a site FYI

It would be helpful to know what version of Internet Explorer you are using.  Here are a couple of articles concerning Explorer causing an IPF in Kernel32 that might be relevant:

Error Message Typing Address in Address Box or in Open Box (Q221085)

Various Error Messages May Be Displayed After You Install Internet Explorer (Q225040)

A couple of things to try.  

Turn off Active Desktop and see if that clears up the problem.

Close all programs running in the backup ground one by one until the problem stops.  (ctrl-alt-del, then end task, dont close explorer or systray)

I'd recommend a split.  All of us gave good advice, but we were never notified if any of it worked.

It would have been nice to know that.  We cannot help if we don't get any feedback. Do you want further help, or are you going to delete this question?

osiruz-->  As you see, the experts here are still willing to collaborate with you further on this, but much was added for you without your response.  Please let the expert know what happened when you tried their recommendations, or what else you need here.  This is an IT Collaboration site, which means your feedback is ALWAYS needed.
