Please help! This is a small school and we are networked several
of our computers in various buildings have come up with the error
Explore invalad page fault in module egieengine.dll I have searched the entire microsoft site and every other place I can think of. No mention of this! I can not connect to the internet to try to download a service pack for internet explorer 5.5.
We are running win 98. We have also run a virus scanner and seem to come up clean.:confused:

Hi, and welcome to the board! :)

It's a Gator file, so this appears to be a spyware issue.

Please do this:

Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

Thanks so much for your help. I was able to fix the problem myself. I downloaded a trial spyware killer from another machine and installed it on the infected one. Did the trick! Can you recommend a good spyware stopper for our school? I don't want to have to mess with this anymore! I am a little surprised our firewall lets these things get through.
Again thank you!
Linda

You're welcome Linda.

Your firewall will not stop spyware from getting on your machine, either when bundled with software you wittingly download, or by so called "drive by" downloads when visiting a web page.

You need to tighten your security settings, watch what you download, and regularly scan your drives with a properly updated spyware killer.

Cheers,
