This is usually caused by Internet Explorer (yes!) dlls having been corrupted.
It takes some computer savvy to resolve, but it can certainly be done!

Take a look here:

Blank Desktop or Illegal Operations Error Message After You Install Internet Explorer (don't worry about the title, the advice in this article is relevant to your problem!)

NOTE: You must SKIP points 2 , 3, 4, and 5.

Go from 1 straight to 6.

NOTE - IMPORTANT!: the command to restore the previous version of IE needs to be modified slightly if you're running IE 6.0 (which I'm assuming is the case):

In that case, in point nr. 6 replace the 5 in "setupwbv.dll, IE5 Maintenance" by a 6.


Or follow the steps in method 2 of this MS article:

Error Message: Explorer Caused an Invalid Page Fault in Module Browseui.dll (once again, don't worry about the title)

Good luck.

LOL, even two of them!

It's probably because the articles' titles don't appear to be entirely to the point.

It's however a common issue in Win98, and reinstalling IE, with its shared system files, routinely fixes this.
As the Explorer shell won't load it does unfortunately take some advanced tinkering... :tazz:

I know, I've been walking people through the process of reinstalling IE, but I've been typing it out each time. Plus I have been using progman.exe as the shell....winfile.exe is a much more elegant shell for this purpose.

I am glad I read your post...
