    How long has the shutdown problem been happening? gfxdrv.drv is a Video driver (Intel I think). You may need to remove and reinstall (or update) those


    You might want to try restoring a prior registry if this is a problem starting in the last 4 days. Click Start> Shutdown > Restart in MS-DOS Mode. Or boot to a command prompt by holding the ctrl key on startup and selecting the command prompt option from the boot menu. At the prompt enter:

    scanreg /restore

    and use your arrow keys to select a prior started registry from one of the first 4 displayed.

    hi techies!

    thanks for the response. the solution (reinstalling graphics driver) to the second problem related to IE solved my first one, that related to shutdown (error in VxD) but the IE is still not working. here is the problem in detail:

    whenever i start my IE 6.0, it pops out that white close/ignore window, which refuses to 'ignore' and when i close it, it presents the GPF window with following:

    IEXPLORE caused a general protection fault
    in module GFXDRV.DRV at 0001:000072d0.
    Registers:
    EAX=0000ffff CS=0357 EIP=000072d0 EFLGS=00000202

    i have reinstalled my graphics card(intel 740) drivers which includes gfxdrv.drv but the problem is persisting. also, i tried demoting to IE5.5 and then reinstalling IE6 but same problem with both versions. i am able to run OE without problems. also everything else is working just fine, even video applications. i am able to work with fastbrowser, it's doing ok. even HTML based help manuals are working fine.

    please help.

    also my windows explorer seems to have caught the GPF infection. it gives me the following problem once in a while:

    EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
    module PDM.DLL at 0197:4a01259d.

    my computer is intel pentium III with windows 98 ver 4.10.1998, having intel 740 AGP, with a Pixelview PlayTVPro TV Tuner Card, Creative Vibra 128 bit sound card.

    if you need any more information please do ask it (for my favor!).

    any help will be appreciated.


    yours needfully,

    Vipin Agrawal.

    pdm.dll is not a default Win98 install, so you must be running something that installed and is using it.

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=227152

    Also, give us a copy/paste of a HijackThis Scanlog so we can see just what is starting up.

    I don't know what could be causing that gpf if you have installed the latest available graphics drivers for your system.

    But see if this helps as a work around. Right Click on My Comptuter and select Properties > Performance > Graphics.

    Lower the hardware acceleration one or two notches. You will see a performance hit, but it's a good test to see if the problem is related to faulty drivers.

    For many "most" (one notched reduced) is an acceptable workaround.

    thanks rollin!

    i tried hijackthis but found nothing suspicious. i found another techguy forum with similar problem and found a workaround. though it's not a complete solution, it worked. i had to turn my Google toolbar off!
