If you downloaded some new kernel32.dll files just delete them. Replacing the one you have won't fix anything for this problem. The standard "first thing to try" for your problem is to download and run Ad-ware and see if you have any spyware that could be causing the error. http://www.lavasoft.de/

But let us know what it finds before deleting anything with it. You may need to remove what if finds another way.

How often does the error pop up? Does it occur after turning on the computer or only after it's been on awhile? If the latter it could be due to low resources. When you get the error again check your resources and see where they're at. To do that right click the My Computer icon and select Properties--Performance tab.

Do you have Gator installed?

The error is "IExplore in Kernel32.dll" right? Check if any of these apply but they may not:

EDIT: Have you recieved the error after running Ad-aware? If not deleting what you did with Ad-aware may have taken care of the problem.

It seems i get the error message maybe 30min to an hour into surfing the web. then its like dominoes. until i restart the cpu. i looked at the website that kento suggested but only entry fit the desription, and that link was not working. ran ad-ware, trojan remover, f-prot. any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm having the same problem. Running win98. Started about 1 week ago. Downloaded ad-ware (3 files deleted yesterday) also ran virus scan and nothing found. Not sure what to do now. It's only been happening when I visit this one website. Here is error I'm getting: (p.s. ignore the AOL part of this-lol-I know how u all feel about it)
WAOL caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0167:bff7a388.
Registers:
EAX=e22443c7 CS=0167 EIP=bff7a388 EFLGS=00010212

Bytes at CS:EIP:

It doesn't always have WAOL in front of it. I have tried reinstalling aol, but that hasn't worked either. Any other suggestions? Thanks much!
