Surfing the internet has become a royal pain in the @#%+ lately because whenever I try and type something into a box on a website.... such as Google or any other search engine, I get this error message

EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
module USER.EXE at 001e:0000166c.

Now... I did a look-up on this error message and performed the reccomended fix.... which was....

Bring up DOS-MODE

type cd\windows
deltree history
exit

this was after disabling the AUTO-COMPLETE feature and then enabling it once again.

This error message is supposed to be caused by some kind of corrupt history folder or something.

I have performed the FIX several times.... exactly as stated.... with no resolution.

Sometimes, all I have to do is activate the cursor or hit backspace and there goes my IE..... with the EXACT error message every time.

Any alternative suggestions? Again, it happens whenever I enter something into an open text box on websites.

Thanks in advance

That is frequently a warning of some malware having hijacked IE

go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Thanks BLUE for your advice. It will take some time and effort to do all that you reccomend, as I am not a genius with computers.... however, I will do my best.

From what you see... just an observation, do I have a lot of things "GOING ON" that could be affecting my surfing experience? I mean... more than the average person in your opinion?

Thanks again :)

DAVID
