    Hi,
    I've been reading old posts to try and find my answers but I'm still not getting resolution. I'm getting this error message in the details:
    IEXPLORE caused an invlaid page fault in module KERNAL32.DLL at 0157:bff88a37.
    Register.....

    I'm really technically challenged, so go slow.

    Also, I should mention that I ran AdAware and cleaned away spyware but it didn't change anything.

    Thanks for getting back to me. In answer to your questions, I am running Windows 95 with Office Professional 2000. Installed this in the middle of December and that's when the trouble began. At first it permeated all my Microsoft programs: Word, Excel and Powerpoint. I couldn't do anything with these. I would click on Word and almost immediately I would get the error message. In hopes of solving the problem, I backed up all my files and used my boot disk to recreate my computer the way it was when I bought it. However, It didn't have Microsoft on it for some reason so I had to reinstall the Office Professional 2000 again. I didn't notice anything wierd at first. Then about 2 weeks ago I put in a new printer, HP inkjet and I install ATT Worldnet as my email server. Now, I get the message when I open Outlook and when I try to go into my email account on AOL and when I try to access my business office on my shared website. I also am unable to print in Word for some reason, but I can print in all other programs.

    I hope this helps.

    I noticed this suggestion "Usually caused by old video drivers, update your video drivers and see if the error goes away" in another post. I'm wondering if this might be my problem. How would I go about upgrading my video driver?
