Hello,

I am suddenly getting this weird error message on the desktop when I turn my computer on that says "illegal operation performed and will be terminated" or like it and the name of the illegal operation or thing involved is "wmnvram". When I click okay, I get my normal desktop and can do most things, even get on the internet. But I cannot get into my display setting when I right click on the desktop. Instead I get an error message that says, "illegal operation" again and this time it is the file "rndll32.exe" that is illegal. I also can't get to it through control panel. I can't get into my modem through control panel or through device manager. I can't get into device manager at all.

The folks at Dell told me that the only remedy would be to reinstall the OS but I hate to go that far if there is something else that I can try instead.

If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

Oh and by the way, I can get on the internet and still open up most applications on that computer.

Thanks,
Vonique
