Everytime I boot my windows 98se workstation up I get a "explorer caused a invalid page fault in module (unknown) at 0000:006c3041".  When I close that window my systems reboots and we start all over again.  I can't get past this.  Why?

The Error Message "Explorer Caused an Invalid Page Fault in Module Unknown" Is Displayed When Starting Windows

This behavior occurs when the Comctl32.dll file is damaged or is from an incorrect version of Internet Explorer.

Easiest way to solve this is to get one of those internet connection CDs that are virtually given out everywhere. This basically reinstalls internet explorer with a newer version, and solves your problem:)
