      Hi, there are several possible culprits, but illegal operation messages give some information (such as the memory address). The first thing I would do would be to disable my virus protection run scandisk and then run defrag. Write down the full information about the illegal operations if they continue. Check out the site, http://www.windowstrouble.com; this site will walk you through several possible reasons for the illegal ops. At the site search under “illegal operations.” Hope this helps.

      Hello!

      If you get this error message again, click on the details button in the dialog box and look for the alpha-numeric error code. Write this down and then go Microsoft Technet website and do a search for this error code. I’ve used this methodseveral times myself and it got me out of some pretty sticky situations. Good luck!

      The application is trying to access memory to activate before the previous process has been closed,causing the dll.file to report a warning that is cannot perform the operation,If it is the basic details as ans2 suggested then you can insert the start up disk and reinstall the files from floppy.

      these errors are normally due to some program trying to access part of the memory which is already in use by a tsr program, however if these are happening a lot i’d advised testing the memory and cpu as either or both may be faulty
