    EXPLORER CAUSED PAGE FAULT>KERNEL32.DLL

    Hello and thanks to the one who can help. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> Here's the deal, going back a few weeks I downloaded a p2p called 'Piolet';after install and prior to opening it crashed my computer. On blue screen dialogue was something like: Error loading kernel. You must Reinstall Windows. I pressed my restart button, Windows opened N/P; opened ADD/Delete through Control Panel and uninstalled program. Things looked like they were going to be OK; but then this error comes up almost daily>>
    EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
    module KERNEL32.DLL at 0197:bff7b9a6.

    A different error that comes up is>>

    This was called from 0028:C16370FA in VxD VTD1 (01)T 000000BA

    Oh my...well there you have it. What is the process of fixing these glitches? Can I do this myself or must I take it to the computer <img src=/S/doctor.gif border=0 alt=doctor width=25 height=33> ? My OS is Win98se, Dell Dimension T450 if that is of any help.
    Thanks muchly for any assistance.

    Read this Click Here Also you need to Downlaod a Spyware remover and run it. Adware is a good one and free. You can get it here Click here for Adware 6.0
    Also you might try getting yourself away from your present configuration by restoring to an earlier
    time when all was well;
    use Ctrl or F8 key to boot to DOS(Command Prompt Only)
    type: scanreg /restore
    press the Enter key
    pick a date before the "troubles"
    exit and reboot
    By the way several people on the Internet are having the same problem you are with that Program.

    Re: EXPLORER CAUSED PAGE FAULT>KERNEL32.DLL

    Thank you Mr. Cowboydawg...Following your instructions the problem I was having has disappeared. Another issue though. Do you know how to uninstall 'Diskeeper'? Says it came with uninstaller, but doing so from my control panel says its missing the '.dll' to do so. I decided obviously not to purchase the program, but now seems I'm stuck with it. Wanna bail me out again? Thanks

    1st check in Start, Programs, Diskeeper and see if there is an uninstall option in that list. If not try reloading and then uninstalling, also during the reload it might give you a choice such as, Install, Repair or Uninstall. If so just choose uninstall. May I ask why you didn't like Diskeeper? It is one of the best on the Market. Much better then the Windows Defrag.I used it for along time until I found Perfectdisk { A killer defrag Program} you can download a trial version here Perfectdisk Just remember never to be afraid to try new things if they have been recommended by a good forum such as Woodys Lounge. If you don't like them you can always remove them one way are the other. Let me know if you need further assistants removing Diskeeper

    Hi cowboydang:
    What is it about PerfectDisk that makes you prefer it to DiskKeeper?
    Thanks,

    Re: EXPLORER CAUSED PAGE FAULT>KERNEL32.DLL

    Well I at one time had both of them on my machine. After alot of testing and Benchmarks I found Perfectdisk to not only be faster but it left things much cleaner and more compact. It defrags my Boot files and puts them to the front. It would do an offline defrag of my directories and drop them down all together in a place all by themselves. I mean I could run Diskeeper after a couple weeks and it would still leave some files scattered that would be handled on a second pass that Perfectdisk would handle on the first run. Don't get me wrong, Diskeeper is a very good Defrag program. I used it for almost a year before I found Perfectdisk. After using Perfectdisk for about 6 months I would never go back to Diskeeper. But thats just my Opinion, for what it's worth. Maybe Bruce could shed some light on the subject, he switched over from Diskeeper to Perfectdisk. Most people know there computers and they can tell if something is working better for them or gives them a little performance boost. It's like your car. You can feel the difference in a good fuel and a better fuel by the acceleration and performance, but that doesn't mean the good fuel won't get you were your trying to go. Here is a screenshot of my 30GB Hard Drive.

    Thanks for the response. I went to the web site. Their latest version is certified for Windows 2000 & designed for XP. I'm still using Win 98SE. They do have an older version that I might try out.

    Re: EXPLORER CAUSED PAGE FAULT>KERNEL32.DLL

    Can I ask a question about Scandisk and Defrag here?
    What symptoms tell you that you need to do one or the other? I've always done it once a month, but have never noticed
    any kind of difference afterwards. I've also been told NOT to defrag this often, but never got a reason why.
    Hope I'm not barging in on someone else's time? Would appreciate hearing something about this, and thanks.

    I have always been told that Defragging doesn't hurt anything that it helps keep your machine to keep running smoothly, and it does. I can say for a fact that it helps performance by gathering all your files back in to the groups they should be in, instead of being scattered all over the hard drive, cuts down on seek time. I have heard that Scandisk is not good to do all the time but I am unsure why. And as long as Scandisk doesn't show a problem don't worry about it, that is a good thing. As for symtoms. If your machine is running sluggish it's probably time to Defra. If you are having problems with your computer running applications and such you can run Scandisk to see if it can find that problem and repair it. If you shut your system down improperly it will automaticly to a scan when it reboots.
