Fix explorer in win98se Tags: How To Explorer Ie6 Windows Last response: January 16, 2003 4:57 PM in Windows 95/98/ME Share vipergt023 January 15, 2003 5:12:47 AM Hi, Anyone know how to fix explorer in win98se w/out reinstalling the os? I've tried repair for IE5, but that didn't work. Then I installed IE6, and the same error occurs - "invalid page fault" and/or "general protection fault."

You could re-install without formatting, which will refresh all the files, sometimes works. You might take everything out of Startup--- Start->Run->MSconfig then go to the startup tab and uncheck everything. If that fixes it, add things back in one at a time until it stops working again. Other than that, I would just Wipe and re-install. | Report abuse jlanka January 16, 2003 9:40:51 AM you might have a hardware problem. Try different RAM, perhaps. <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i> | Report abuse vipergt023 January 16, 2003 3:36:56 PM there's brand new RAM in there. I think it's a software problem. thanks for the help though. | Report abuse jlanka January 16, 2003 4:57:31 PM OK, well, what changed that started the problem? Did it always exist? Did you install something and suddenly it started GPFing? <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i> | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 95/98/ME>Fix explorer in win98se> Related ressources: ForumWin98SE explorer and IE flashing ForumPop-Up Lock-Up in Win98se Explorer ForumWindows Explorer crippled after upgrade to XP - fix ? reins..
