Page Fault Errors

By oneshot ·
Constantly receive "Page fault in module Kernel32.dll"
"page fault in module shlwapi.dll"
"page fault in module comctl32.dll"
Is there anything specific that causes these Invalid Page Fault errors? and what can I do to correct the problem?

Page Fault Errors

Good Morning.. Gonna do my best to answer the question. Most of these times when errors occur (like the ones you are having) they ussually have a "??????? Caused" in front of it. So not know the exact application that cause the error slows it down a little bit. Feel free to email me more details if you would like.

However. the comctl32.dll looks like it's a dll associated with Microsofts Intellipoint software v2.0 installed and the "smartfocus" options selected. If you are using this hardware/software you might want to look for a new driver/software.

The shlwapi.dll issue only has 1 document associated with it.

It seems to suggest that a possible file has been corrupted file name is Hhctrl.ocx and it is suggested that you re-install it.

In any case this is probable the best I could considering the limits of the initial description. Feel freeto email for more he

If the errors are consistent, meaning you receive the same ones everytime then I agree that you should reinstall the OS rather than spend a lot of time guessing which application is causing the problems. A page fault is when a hw driver or service is stepping out of its "bounds".

I suggest reinstalling the OS on top of your current configuration to salvage most of your settings.

If the errors keep changing you need to look at your memory in the PC. Try diags in your BIOS if available. I have seen this many times.

Another possibility, after checking previous answers, is bad simms. I dealt with this problem a couple of years ago, reinstalled windows several times, finally replaced sims, and all has been well ever since. It seems the memory check at bootup wasnot thorough enough to catch a simms weakness under all conditions.

I would suggest changing your memory. Errors in RAM have been known to cause page faults under certain conditions. Page faults were happening on my system until I replaced the cheaper RAM with some quality ECC RAM. It's worth a try.
