    Angry Windows 98 Explorer

    After windows is running, I will be in the middle of doing something, no matter what it is either on th net or just working on the computer, all the sudden the computer stops and I get "EXPLORER HAS PORFORMED A ILLEGAL OPERATION" and I have to close explorer. What can I do to get this to stop?

    First thing you might try is a repair of Internet Explorer. Go from Start to Run, type in msinfo32. When the window appears go to Tools, click and select the option that says Repair of Internet Explorer.

    Well I tried what you said, I also ran Norton Anti Virus to make sure I had no Virus, ran scan disk, and also defrag. the drive, and I am still having the same problem. No what should I do?

    This is one of the messages I got when explorer quit on me....

    This is another one I got....


    EXPLORER caused a general protection fault
    in module DIBENG.DLL at 0003:000000f3


    Hope you can make sense of all that, because I sure can't.
    Thanks!

    Dibeng = Device Independent Bitmap Engine

    Here's a description of the dibeng.dll error:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;235618

    This error is apparently caused by an incompatible display driver being installed on the PC.

    After I did that this is the message I get now everytime on Startup.


    Also I am still getting the first Explorer message that I posted in my last post above. The one with the same type of message as this one, not the DIBENG.DLL one.

    I just don't get it, I get one to stop, and another starts. Thanks

    That second one looks to be related to an HP printer...try uninstallin gthe printer software and reinstalling it.
