    illegal operation meesage

    Locked

    by mplourde ·

    All of a sudden I keep getting the “has performed an illegal operation, …shut down..” message. Even right after a reboot, I just try to print a word document and I get this message.

    Any help as to what this could be

    Compaq laptop with Windows 98

      1st step would to be instal latest drivers or if they are the latest, re-install them.

      2nd step would be to insert your office cd and do a repair on office

      Good luck

      Uninstall your printer then reboot and reinstall the printer but check for late updates to the printer driver first. That does not work try this: Reboot in msdos mode, go to your windows directory probably WINDOWS so type cd c:\windows. type these comands but press enter after each one.
      attrib -h -r -s system.dat
      attrib -h -r -s system.da0
      copy system.da0 system.dat
      attrib -h -r -s user.dat
      attrib -h -r -s user.da0
      copy user.da0 user.dat
      the da0 above are da(ZERO)

      Then restart.

        the last line, the da0 above are da(ZERO), is not a command but a remark! do not type that and enter it
