    has anyone tried implementing this solution to kernel 32 ipf's:

    The following has solved many people's Windows Explorer KERNEL32.DLL crashes. It is given solely as information.

    In the root directory of C:\, modify or create a CONFIG.SYS file to include the following lines:

    FILES=65
    BUFFERS=40
    STACKS=64,512

    which particular error are you referring to? i don't need any more links to ipf and fatal exception collectives. i don't want to try this and try that. i'm interested in specifics. what specifically does that proposed solution address, for instance.

    i have been getting this error:

    IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in
    module KERNEL32.DLL at 0167:bff7b9a6.

    if there is a definite solution for this particular error that would be nice.

    One of the causes of this specific error at this specific address is McAfee.

    Try disabling it, and see if it disappears. If it does, review the McAfee site for updates or suggestions. And/or consider replacing it.

    The parameters above affect the DOS environment. I can't see how that would stop invalid page faults.

    i don't have mcaffee. right now there is nothing in my config.sys window, which why i'm reluctant to put those suggested entries in there without getting some feedback first. i'm running a web filter, the proxomitron, that might be causing that error. but i don't know for sure. i can not use it for a while and put up with popup windows and doubleclick cookies...

    This is a continuation of the original thread you have going on that error specific error message. Please keep replying to the original so everyone knows what you've tried and what you haven't tried. This is closed as a duplicate post.

    BTW, there aren't always absolute, specific and definitive answers to the type of error your getting. You need to be willing to try different things. If your not willing to try different things to see if the error goes away, then your not going to solve it.

    Unfortunately, computer life is just that sometimes...trial and error.

    You can put that in your config sys file....probably won't help, just my opinion.

    You could try updating your video drivers.
