Accessing html files offline

By moorty ·
After I installed [after a crash] Windows 98 SE, I was able to access html files from the Windows Explorer although it would first give me the error message of "cannot find ...". Now for some reason I get the error message of "this program performedan illegal operation" and in the detail I get "Explorer caused an invalid page fault in MSHTML at 0167:70 dcc f23" and a whole bunch of other addresses.
MS technical papers on this were no help. I tried uninstalling Gator and reinstalling it withthe current version. I uninstalled Comet cursor.exe. And there is no place to edit IE stylesheet in the Registry.
Does anyone have a suggestion. Of course, I can access html files through the browsers.

download another browser such as netscape. go to http://www.netscape.com to get it or there is a cool browser for MS-DOS that I like. It is called Arachne. go to http://www.arachne.cz and download it free. then view your web pages in either browser.

In stall the update of IE to 5.5 and see if that fixes the problem. My guess is that you may have installed another program that put an older version of some Dlls on the computer. Also run scandisk and defrag first to make sure the drive is ok.

What I have is IE6.0. And I couldn't get back to 5.5 because the message said that the uninstall [or set up on 5.5] information was not available. I could only reinstall parts of 6.0 [like the browser].
The dates of mshtml.dll on the system file now match the date of IE. Before that I reinstalled Windows and I also removed the old mshtml.dll file and replaced it from a file from the Windows98 setup files. After that I reinstalled whatever I thought were the relevant portions of IE6.0.Now the dates match. But there is no solution.
