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."

Well, you can try the common things like


System File Checker scans for corrupt files, sometimes it can help.

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.

you might have a hardware problem. Try different RAM, perhaps.

there's brand new RAM in there. I think it's a software problem. thanks for the help though.

OK, well, what changed that started the problem? Did it always exist? Did you install something and suddenly it started GPFing?
