Hi indigowindow,there alot of things that can cause that error.Here are some you can try and see if you solve the problem.

IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in KERNEL32.DLL
Kernel32 errors are most often caused by video drivers that need updating. Note that the memory address for video problems is 0nxx:bffxxxxx, where n is 0, 1 or 2 and x is any hex number (0-9 or a-f).

Go to the web site of your video card manufacturer and get the latest drivers for your card. Try turning down your hardware acceleration, color depth, animated cursors, and/or screen resolution.

Update your java VM at http://www.microsoft.com/java

Also update to the latest version of DirectX at www.microsoft.com/directx (run dxdiag to check what version you currently have).

Have a look at these links for assistance.

Err Msg: Invalid Page Fault in Module Apitrap.dll (yes it specifically mentions kernel32.dll as well)
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q224/8/13.asp

If you run Cleansweep, go to Symantec's web site, do a search for apitrap.dll and download their version. A conflict between IE5 and Symantec's version of apitrap has been known to trigger this error message.

And if you're running CrashGuard, turn it off. And turn off any of those programmes such as AdsOff or PopOff. They cause kernel32 problems as well.

Netsonic is known to cause problems and needs to be uninstalled. Basically *any* internet related programmes should be disabled or uninstalled - replacing one at a time to track down the aberrant programme.

There has been a run of problems caused by advert.dll and Comet Cursor. Have a look at my page "Bugs, Glitches and Stuff-Ups" for further information.

McAfee Antivirus is now acknowledged as causing kernel32 crashes (as at V5.1). According to McAfee they are planning to release a patch during the final quarter of 2000. Some have solved their problems by turning OFF the download scan option.
