I am trying to download Brooktree drvers Bt878 Video capture Device -Audio Section and the Brooktree Bt360 mediastream controller so the computer will work in 256 colour. Unfortunately every time I try to do this Internet Explorer crashes even before the download starts error: Illegal operation detail Explorer cause an invalid page fault in module Kernel 32.dll. The version of internet explorer is 4.01 and the operating system is 98. I also get the following error message when going to the microsoft site an error has occured in the script on this page and I can't view all of the microsoft site most importantly windows update. I can download the drivers on another computer but I don't want to save it to the hard drive in case I suffer problems as this computer runs XP. The only option is from the site www.driverguide.com but I ghave to pay to get a copy of the driver on CD and I don't want to give out credit card details to an unknown site especially if I don't know if this will fix the problem.

any help wopuld be much appreciated

You could use save to your CDRW Drive on the XP Machine, also if you do not install it to the XP Machine, removing it won't cause an issue.

Have you looked at repairing IE

If you're reinstalling an operating system the first thing you need to do is get the latest version of IE, the older versions can't handle the script on pages, even the MS update page. You can Google to find the Microsoft IE6SP1 page, put that into Google, fortunately Google and the IE6 page don't use heavy script so you can get to it. You may need to download the install.exe to your computer to run it.

That should help you a lot.
