When using Java related sites I have been receiving illegal operation errors. I managed to fix this problem by installing the sun java console. However, I use http://www.mp3delivery.net/ to download mp3's and some sites mp3delivery links to use a java applet to download the mp3s. I cannot seem to get this working at all, I have also tried the icrosoft website which is of no use, and download the Microsoft VM which made no difference. Here is a copy of the error i receive:

IEXPLORE caused a general protection fault

I run windows 98SE on this computer, but I also have a laptop that runs 98SE aswell which runs fine on these sites, but I really need this computer to work!!!! Any help would be much appreciated as I have spent hours trying to solve the problem.

Thanks in advance

If that works, give the points to centerv

If you think its a java problem, then this may help,
although I feel the repair of IE is essential

I got the same error message that Mark posted about originally & I was also not able to open any of the Windows games, i.e. Solitair, FreeCell, etc. I solved it on my computer.  Thought somebody else might benefit from what I solved.  I use NVIDIA for my video driver.  I uninstalled from Control Panel - Add/Remove Program.  Then reinstalled my NVIDIA using only the generic settings (not changing any of the settings when the wizard comes up after installation).  I can now open any of the windows games, and I can also access JAVA sites, like the one I was trying to access on Yahoo Games when I got the error message.

Hope this helps someone else.
