    I am running windows 98se and i recently upgraded my ram from 32/66 to 128/100. It posted the new memory and ran fine for 30 minutes then it locked up once and after rebooting i was getting the Illegal operation message

    explorer caused an invalid page fault in module wininet at 0167:702134cc

    fault Msimn comct32.dll 0166:bfb78fcb

    fault Kernel 32.dll at 0167:bff88ecc
    any Ideas?

    P.S. I ran the repair faulty files in ms explorer after the first fault

    Welcome to TSG, jiminee.

    Have you recently installed any new programs prior to receiving the errors?

    Did you run the IE Repair Tool in Add/Remove Programs > Internet Explorer > Remove > Repair? And did it complete without any problems? What did it report?

    It might help for us to see a post of your current startups. You can show that by downloading, unzipping and running the StartupList application from the site below. Then copy/paste the results to a reply here.

    Rollin' Rog thanks for replying

    No new programs install, but i did upgrade my memory and i think its mismatched

    I ran IE repair and no problems were found
    I tried downloading from the site that was attached but it seems as if there was a file missing. Iam still trying to download that complete application.

    I have reinstalled my old memory and error messages have disappeared.

    Thanks Jiminee

    Well it sure sounds like the ram was the culprit then.

    Remember you will need a ZIP program to unzip files with a .zip extension

    And if you don't use the right click "save target as" method of downloading you get a "program.exe" or other type missing file message if windows tries to open it automatically (it doesn't know what to use)

    The download is very short and only takes a second or two.

    If you don't have Winzip, you can get the "evaluation" version here. It does not expire.
