Windows 98 error - Explorer has caused a page fault in Explorer.exe

Hi Experts - I have a Windows98 se system which will not go past the login screen - The error is

Try booting up with the Ctrl key held, select the Command Prompt Only option then enter SCANREG /RESTORE. See if that help.

Usually, this is a very tough error to track down.. often, it can be related to multiple causes, Ex: Norton Antivirus, or other deffective programs. Is there a specifix Hex Code that comes with it?
