    The error is probably being caused by a conflict with an installed program. Usually this occurs with hidden "spyware" that comes bundled with certain downloads. McAfee's antivirus program can also cause a kernel32.dll error when closing a browser window.

    You may need to install and run Ad-aware from lavasoft

    www.lavasoftusa.com/aaw.html

    But first we should have a look at what you have loading and running at startup. We can see this if you do the following: Go to start and run msinfo32

    Click on "software environment" and "startup programs". Then click: edit>select all>edit>copy. You can paste the copied text in your next reply.

    Also if you haven't run an updated antivirus scan, you can do an online one here:

    I use mcafee's antivirus program, but I havent updated it in quite some time. I've never had this problem before. Recently I downloaded another antivirus (AVG 6.0), Maybe this is the problem. If so how do I correct it. By the way when I try to open msinfo32, it says, cannot find msinfo32 (or one of its conponents). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libaries are available.

    Thanks for all the help!!

    What Windows version are you running? Msinfo32 is not available in Win95.

    If you are running two antivirus programs at the same time, you need to disable or uninstall one -- otherwise you are just asking for trouble. They will both try to act at the same time and one or both is likely to fail when needed.

    We can use another method to check your startups by using the Startuplog.com application available here:

    http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html

    Download and unzip it. When you run it, it will place the file startuplog.txt on your desktop. Just copy and paste the entire contents of that in your next reply. Stubbpaths.txt is not needed.

    Did you recently uninstall Office97 ?

    http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q191190

    Do a Find Files search for msinfo32 and mfc40.dll

    Are both found?

    Right click on mfc40.dll if found and select properties>version -- what is the version number?

    Startups don't look too bad, but you definitely need to choose between McAfee and AVG. Personally I would disable or uninstall McAfee.

    See this link concerning nscheck -- I think you should uninstall that or uncheck it using msconfig

    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/n.htm

    And see this thread concerning problems with "backweb"

    I may have recently uninstalled office 97, for I had over 3000 virus infected files, it could have been one of them. You wouldnt happen to know why the net seems to slow down when I play media at the same time. Is this supposed to be happening?


    thanks!!!

    If you are playing streaming media (radio station or online music, etc), you are using the same "bandwidth" -- it's the same as downloading multiple files. And McAfee's webscan probably slows things up quite a bit

    Otherwise it's just a case of processor overload, there will always be some slow down when you do that.
