    the two I keep getting are: This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down, if the problem persists, contact the program vendor. Then there are 3 boxes that go along with it that say CLOSE, DEBUG, DETAILS.

    The other one says ! an error has occurred in internet explorer. Internet explorer will now close. If you continue to experience problems, please restart your computer.

    under the details button: explorer has caused an invalid page fault in module mfc42.dll at 0187:6c3cb55

    also when clicking on my computer a message shows up saying: This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown.
    If the problem persists contact the program vendor.

    I am a new tech a+ certified i wish the test would have taught how to troubleshoot theses errors. I am fustrated how do you learn to diagnose these?

    I ran scanreg /fix under dos mode and the computer freezes at 7%. the o.s is win 98 se

    Can someone please help?
