Browsers Dead . . .

I KNOW BETTER THAN TO GO WITH A STANDARD ANSWER OF "TIME TO REFORMAT AND START FROM SCRATCH" -- THERE'S ALWAYS A SOLUTION.
I use AOL 5.0, Netscape 4.7x and MSIE 5.01 -- until just recently all three worked well together. I am running Windows 98(I purchased the upgrade version, not the full install). I've also complete the recommended Critical Updates. Now anytime I access Netscape or MSIE I get memory IPF errors (and the program crashes), though AOL's browser works fine. With MSIE and Netscape, usually the first page loads fine and then crashes. Everything else works fine as well. I also prefer using Netscape as my primary browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled all three and still get the same results. I also reinstalled Win98. I've also tried falling back to Netscape 4.08 with no luck. I've also used the FullSoft bug fix on Netscape and that didn't help either. I'm running on kernel KERNEL32.DLL version 4.10.2222 (I also tried running with the previous rev of KERNEL v199.

Aol. that's your problem. Just as others have pointed out Aol does modify your system and it doesn't play nicely with others (browsers). Why do you think some online applications have the "Aol user's click here" clause? :)

I have lots of experience and the one guy on here is right as well, there is not ALWAYS a solution to avoid reformatting and its unfair to label it as a "Windows" thing - though I've seen some rock solid Windows NT and UNIX installations, there is no unstoppable 100% rock solid OS on the planet. You can take that to the bank. :)

all the above comments regarding aol are correct, but here's what i would do. i assume you use aol as your isp. just for fun, first check out one of the free suppliers, free i net, or net zero, and download their software without installing. then uninstall the aol, saving to disk any folders, downloads, etc., so you can use them later. install the free isp software, and see if your browser(s) are ok. i bet they run 100% better.

I agree with all that has been suggested.
You have major registry and corrupted files.
I would do a format c:/u/s/v but make sure you run fdisk 1st to delete and then re create the hard drive partitions, then make sure you have a boot floppy that will boot your cdrom drive for re installation. Just to make sure you do not have a master boot record virus, I would also run fdisk /mbr then hit the Enter Button.

We have had similar problems here on our site and have had 3 different solutions to it.

1. Delete your Temporary Internet files, Caches and histories

2. Delete, reboot and reinstall ALL your networking components. (TCPIP, IPX/SPX, DIAL UP NETWORKING, NETWARE and MICROSOFT clients)

3. Delete, reboot and reinstall your NIC or MODEM drivers.
