Unable to load any web page or FTP

By Quarlles ·
When I open IE or Netscape on Win98 se I'm unable so load any web page at all. When I insist, IE or Netscape shuts down and I get an Illegal Operation error. On the other hand in a DOS prompt window, I CAN ping any web site using either the domain name or the IP address. Ftp doesn't work either. This PC is able to log on the network and has no problem browsing the LAN. This is the only workstation that has this problem. Please help!!

I ahve found the easiest way around illegal operation errors is to re-install the operating system. I know this is the hardest thing since all the other software that has to be re-isntalled but it is by far the easiest way to go. Get a fresh isntall done and test it to make sure it works and then reinstall all the other software and them make an image of the drive with drive magic or ghost and go from there.
