All fine until switch profiles/ Win 98SE

By mackzx ·
When I switch profiles, as startup programs load, they each "perform an illegal operation". usually in KERNEL32, & will now close. if it fully loads task mgr shows all is still running. I am just unable to explore. I ran both PC-cillin2k & had Trendcheck online, nothing found. All this seemed to start after trying that Trillian thing. Needless to say that is gone now. The only other program installed was PC-cillin. of course the last restore point is back in march.

Please Help!

I reallyDon't want to start over, AGAIN.

Do you have retained one working profile (that is one profile that is ok when you switch to it) ?

Would you mind to delete other non-working profiles ?

If the answers for both questions is YES and YES, then delete the other non-working profiles (through Users applet in Control Panel, make sure that files are also deleted in \WINDOWS\PROFILES\username.

Retain that one working profile. If you browse it through, you see various subfolder inside the working profile. Copy the appropriate folder into the main Windows folder.

Example: Copy \WINDOWS\Profiles\name\Favorites to \WINDOWS\Favorites
Don't forget to enable "view all files" to allow you to see hidden folders.

Recreate the user profile. Each users now will have the same profiles as you are. Change the apppropriate setting etc.

Good luck.

Both profiles loaded fine when first booted, just when switching, it dominoed. But, tash mgr showed the "closed" programs running and it never missed a beat after.
Resolution: misconfig to takr out the first failed, "Hbinst"
Allis fine now, Thanx for the reply.
