Hi,
You have not really given enough information. To better help you, please tll us what operating system you are running, amount of Ram, how big is the hard drive, is the computer new or old. Has this problem just started happening? what did you install or uninstall before this occurred?

Microsoft windows will give invalid page faults for many reasons, knowing the above information will certainly narrow the possibilities down.

Usually if the computer generates a message like that, it's not finding the information it needs in the Page file. The page file or swap file, is temporary memory on your drive windows caches to for faster data retrieval. Sometimes, defragmentingyour drive may resolve this. Also, check for a critical update. If this doesn't work, you may have to reinstall Windows. In cases like these, it may not hurt to just run the setup from within Windows rather than a full install. But, if that still doesn't resolve, you may have to wipe the drive and start fresh.

Come to think of it, if you have Norton Utilites, try running WinDoctor. I have seen this resolve many issues like that.

Have found a Bad load of IE or not loading all patches before trying to run IE will cause errors in explorer.exe and get all recommended / required patches for your OS and IE. If computer was operational and quit working could be a corrupted file or virus attack. Virus check, scandisk, and reload.

OTL, explorer.exe is the executable for Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer and he gets this on boot.
