I am on AOL 4.0. I use a 486DX2 PC w/ Windows 95.

I frequently receive a popup reading "This computer has performed an illegal operation & will shut down." It gives details like this:

WAOL caused a general protection fault
in module JSCRPT16.DLL at 0001:000021f4.
Registers:
EAX=8ac75709 CS=6f0f EIP=000021f4 EFLGS=00000212

00000000 d4200000 d3e0505f 6ad4505f

Usually it's JSCRPT but sometimes it's SUPERSUB or other things. Then I am booted offline & AOL shuts down.

How do I stop this? Someone recommended I use SFC, which Windows 95 doesn't have... Is there any way I can prevent this from happening?

Get the newest version of AOL. It's at 7.0 now, check the system reqiuirements before installing, do the following first:

Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the demo) Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.

Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly. Create your anti-virus' Rescue disk(s) and update them after each Windows anti-virus update.

You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.antivirus.com
