    Winword. exe -invalid pg fault (Word97, SR-2)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by curious on 07-Feb-03 15:19. Further to the above, I was working on a table when received
    "windowrd has caused an invalid pg fault in module Winword.Exe at 0167:30081399."

    Does that clue help-- at all?


    )</P>Morning -

    Upgraded my memory, and the next day until now, working with tables I often get messages of
    "Winword has caused an invalid pg fault in Module MSHY32.DLL" (which is, apparently, a proofing file),
    and
    "windowrd has caused an invalid pg fault in module Winword.Exe at ..." and
    "Explorer caused an invlaid pg fault in module Kernel32.Dll"

    + illegal operation messages.

    I know tables can be a 'drain' but is there another reason? It is, to say the least, most time consuming to loose table formitting and inputting. The tables themselves are rather plain; they are filled with numbers.
    I do switch to print prevu often to ensure the table is set up correctly re grids/no grids, etc.

    This can't be related to the upgrade can it? That's most counter-intuititve.

    Thank you for any hints on how to avoid some/most of these error messages.

    Yes, I have deleted the temp files, as has been suggested in other posts; I've scanned/defragged, I reboot often. Still get the messages

    Re: Winword. exe -invalid pg fault (Word97, SR-2)

    Bizarre behavior like this is often the result of a corrupted Normal.dot and it's corresponding
    registry keys for toolbars and settings. Delete those keys and rename or delete your normal.dot
    and try again.

    Hi Curious,

    I once saw behaviour of this sort on a laptop. I found that the laptop's memory board was not correctly seated so I corrected this and the problems went away. It could be a coincidence, but the problems did not come back. Maybe your memory upgrade is not irrelevant to the problems.

    Regards.

    Ed

    And make sure that you've deleted your temp files that remain after all these crashes. You can see instructions for doing so in Step 1 of <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>.
    Cheers,

    Kevin, Ed, Phil -

    Thank you for your posts.

    I had the memory seating checked, and was told it was ok.

    The same person who checked the memory cards suggested that perhaps AOL is interfering when sending banner ads, etc. Even though I sign off from AOL (but not exit the program) and continue working in Word, he suggested this could be happening. Does this sound possible to you? It's certainly worth a try--completely closing out AOL.

    Have good weekends,
    Curious

    Sure. It's always possible for applications to conflict with each other. Although it's a PITA, I'd reboot with NOTHING running except Explorer, systray, & my antivirus. Then see if the problem occurs in Word. If it does, I'd run an up to date virus check &, if negative, then RUN Word without the antivirus.

    Then add back in one process at a time until I found the conflict.
    Hope this helps,
