I'm running a win98se, and I got this illegal operation message that I can't get rid of. I've had this before, but I can't rmember what I did to cleanse the system. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't seem to be able to find that error message, but it's a common one.

So it doesn't mention Kernel32.dll or Rundll32 or some such ?

In that case what are you doing on the pc when his occurs ? Surfing or ....?

I think I was installing Roboform--a password app.

I rebooted and got rid of the error message; and I got rid of Roboform too because it had placed a toolbar without my permission below the address bar. Roboform could have caused it; on the other hand, I seem to remember that I had to change a setting to stop that kind of an error message from occurring.

Hi again,

As you say you have uninstalled Roboform and because of the toolbar issue - perhaps you could give your system a quick scan with Spybot or Adaware in case there are other elements still remaining ....
