IE5 Invalid Instruction

By robert ·
I continue to have IE5 crash with an "invalid instruction". I have the following system:

Pentium 200
96MB RAM
1.6GB Hard drive - plenty of free space
Windows 98 Second Edition

The following error occurs:
****************************************

***************************************
I have tried:
1. All technet recomendations
2. Latest drivers
3. New video card
4. All possible video settings
5. Format/reload

Any thoughts?

This DLL has your Internet settings in it. If you get an illegal intruction error the only thing I can recommend is to replace it with WINNET.DLL from the CD. To do this go to System Tools and run the System File Checker, this will check all the Windows system files and make sure they are not changed or corrupted. When you run this there is an option to extract files (in .CABS) from the CD. Point to the WIN directory on the CD and type in the name. It will do the rest and ask if you want to backup the old one.

I agree with 1. Replace the wininet.dll. It sounds like it could be corrupted. Also a collegue of mine was having similar problems, so he did an active set up from Microsofts web site.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

This is what I would refer too as a no win situation. One of two solutions is plausible. Replace everything, software and hardware, Motherboard, HD Sound anything and everything except the case (and maybe that too). If this does not work get your computer, a hammer and a shotgun and "take it for a walk in the country." You will return but your computer will not. You will feel better, =) but not the machine.
