Illegal Operation!

by VinnyD In reply to Illegal Operation!

There is no one answer to your question. Many things can cause the illegal operation error.

To minimize the number of them you should always to this:

1. Re-boot the computer

2. Scan the disk (in standard mode) to make sure there are no fileproblems. I recommend scanning without AutoCorrect on! So you can see any errors that there were.

3. ALWAYS! ALWAYS! Delete all the temp files!
In win 9.x that means \windows\temp should have all the files deleted.

4. Write down what programyou were using! IF that same program is being used the next time it happens, then reload that program.

Other tips:

Make sure that no programs are running before you install software! That includes that office tool bar!

Scan the disk 1st to be sure there are no file problems before you install. I do that whenever I load a program on someone else's computer.

There's a lot of things that can cause illegal operation in microsoft windows. Some 16-bit applications or DOS-based running under the 32-bit mode can cause the problem. Bad drivers is another one. Shared DLL files can also cause that problem. To minimize having these kind of trouble, defrag your disk periodically to organize files that may trip your system. Update your application programs regularly and obtain newer versions of your drivers from the manufacturers.

When you get an illegal operation error, go to the details - This will have a line that will tell you more about the error. It will state that <x> caused an IPF in module <x> - this is the relevant information of the error, the rest, not important. The first part <x> will tell you the calling file/program and the second <x> will tell you what file/program had the problem. These can give you direction for resolving the issue.

Good luck...
