All browsers initially generate an IPF

By rsedaker ·
When I open either IE 5.5 or netscape 4.7 I get the same IPF. (see DrWatson diag. below) When I get this message, I am able to circumvent the problem by activating Dr watson AFTER I try opening the browser. Once the good Dr. checks the system, I receive the enviable "no problems or conflicts" message. If, however, Dr. Watson is activated before I start browsing, this is the error message I get:

"The application or one of its DLLs used an uninitialized function pointer variable or attemptedto use a DLL which has already been freed.

Module Name: <unknown>

Application Name: Iexplore.exe
Description: Internet Explorer
Version: 5.00.2919.6304
Product: Microsoft(R) Windows (R) 2000 Operating System
Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation

--------------------
Adobe Type Manager has altered Windows system files.

Module Name: ATMSYS.DRV
Description: Adobe Type Manager
Version: R v4.00-32S058G06NN
Product: Adobe Type Manager
Manufacturer: Adobe Systems Incorporated

--------------------
<unknown> has altered Windows system files.

Module Name: <unknown>"

I have verified the files and reinstalled everything. I have done an IE repair as well. I have no clue what to do next. Both norton and McAffee cannot find a viral cause. (and yes, I have liscences for both! :-))

I appreciate any help from the brain trust!

I have found in the past that norton and macaffe don't mix. You might try uninstalling one of them and see if this has any effect, when I was using both on a system I got all kinds of errors and problems with my browers. rockyolson@charter.net

HI once again if youare running win 98 youmight try this. Click start, run, and then type sfc and then ok. It will check your system files for you and repair any that are found when youdo this make sure you have your 98 disc in the cd-drom. hope this works. rockyolson@charter.net

In the [boot] section of the System.ini file "system.drv=system.drv" line will sometimes read "system.drv=atmsys.drv". The atmsys.drv driver will cause a conflict, and prevent the rest of our drivers from loading properly.

Check the following link for more information.
