Sometimes a window pops up saying:

IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 016f:bff9db61

I click Close but the window doesn't go away and I have to reboot.

Also, when I right click a file, instead of seeing 'Open', I see 'blank'.
I reinstalled Win98 but it didn't help.

You may need new video drivers. Check the website of your video board or
computer manufacturer. Meanwhile, you can do the following:

1. Use the default mouse pointers.

2. Turn down your color depth. (Right click the desktop and choose
Properties | Appearance | Settings) Some people find that increasing color
depth helps.

3. Turn down your graphics hardware acceleration. (Start | Settings |
Control Panel | System | Performance | Graphics button) You will see
little, if any, performance degradation.

4. Turn off your desktop wallpaper.

If these make the problem go away you need new video drivers.

Also check your system for "hijackware":

(1) You may be in for a long haul...
http://search.support.microsoft.com/kb/c.asp?fr=0&SD=GN... MSKB
Search "Kernel32"; Windows 98; Title Only; Exact Phrase; produces over a
page full.

http://www.colba.net/~hlebo49/errkrn32.htm
Many are here too.

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q286/1...

(2) Here is what mine looks like in Win98SE...

KERNEL32.DLL
Desc: Win32 Kernel core component
Loc: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
Size: 471,040 bytes
Mod: Friday, April 23, 1999 10:22:00 PM
Ver: 4.10.2222

If it comes to reinstalling it, that is old enough never to have been
Windows Updated. Therefore it will be fine right out of the .cabs.

Here is how to do it in DOS...

(a) DIR /s /a C:\KERNEL32.DLL
Will say whether you have it, & where it is. Should be in
"C:\Windows\System"

C:\>DIR /s /a C:\KERNEL32.DLL
Directory of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
KERNEL32 DLL 471,040 04-23-99 10:22p KERNEL32.DLL
1 file(s) 471,040 bytes

(b)
"EXTRACT /a /L C:\Windows\System <LOC>\Base4.cab Kernel32.dll"

That is all one line between the quotes with 5 spaces, but do not enter
the quotes. It will offer to overwite, if one is already there.

<LOC> is the location of "Base4.cab". This may be discovered as
follows...

C:\>DIR /s /a C:\base4.cab
Directory of C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS
BASE4 CAB 168,960 04-23-99 10:22p BASE4.CAB
1 file(s) 168,960 bytes

If you have the .cabs on a CD, you will use your CD-ROM drive letter,
instead of "C:\" in that DIR command.

So, in my case, the command is...

"EXTRACT /a /L C:\Windows\System C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\Base4.cab
Kernel32.dll"

All one line: no quotes: there are 5 spaces in the line, including one
after "Base4.cab".
