    Hey, lately my Internet explorer has been acting up. I keep on getting an error message:

    EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
    module KERNEL32.DLL at 0167:bff9dfff.

    But when I close the error box nothing happens and I can go on working but the message box will come up again. I don't know what this means and I tried repairing IE but nothing's changed.
    Just to mention, I've run ad-aware, AVG and my start-up list is clean.
    The rest of the error message is:

    Registers:
    EAX=00000000 CS=0167 EIP=bff9dfff EFLGS=00000246
    EBX=81937144 SS=016f ESP=00e4f888 EBP=00000000
    ECX=0000016f DS=016f ESI=00000001 FS=4897
    EDX=00e4fa28 ES=016f EDI=bffca060 GS=0000
    Bytes at CS:EIP:
    cc a1 e0 9c fc bf 8b 00 66 64 f7 05 1c 00 00 00
    Stack dump:
    01390000 81937188 7ffce5a4 00000000 81959744 e01623f0 00000000 0043504c 00e4f89c 81e0f4d4 7ffc6aa6 bfc05bd6 00000082 7fb910a1 00000228 00000082

    Hope someone can help.

    try this(assuming you run XP,as i take it this article pertains to):

    http://www.jsifaq.com/SUBG/TIP3000/rh3055.htm

    kinda technical,but if you're comfortable with doing this , it might be the thing.

    someone may post a more simple fix,tho.

    I tried that password thing yesterday but no dice, still happens.
    All of a sudden on re-boot I've been getting the password prompt thing and I don't know why that's started either but I'd love to get rid of that too.
    Sheesh. How did Bill ever get so rich?

    he bought Q-dos from one of his friends , worked out a few bugs, renamed it ms-dos,and sold it to ibm, with a few conditions , such as he could sell it to other computer manufacterers, too.


    maybe you can go to the password section of control panel & where it says make new password, it will say "old windows password" & " new windows password". just leave both blank & push apply.( see what happens).


    sorry , i could not help much(if at all).
    i'll read up on it some more when i get time,maybe i'll find something or someone else will know what to do.

    did you try the video fix? i would not think that it would matter , but you never kno, at least you find out if it fixes it or doesn't.


    good luck.

    Yeah I tried that too, no luck. I can't figure this out.
    Why this password thing has started too I can't figure out either.
    Sometimes Windows really drives me crazy.
