When I open My Computer and start looking and doing things on different drives, I get a 'close" error with the following:

EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0167:bff9dc19.
EAX=c00309cc CS=0167 EIP=bff9dc19 EFLGS=00010212
EBX=0086fde0 SS=016f ESP=0082fdf4 EBP=00830090

Bytes at CS:EIP:
53 8b 15 e4 dc fc bf 56 89 4d e4 57 89 4d dc 89
Stack dump:

It does this at various times while doing various things, most often when making a new folder. I have run AVG, Spybot S&D, and Malwareguard. I have run Scandisk, defrag, PQ Magic, etc. Can't find anything wrong. Please help

BTW, I am running 98SE with all updates and this has only started occurring recently. Can't think of any one thing I installed or did differently prior to the problem, same drives, etc.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Have you tested the Ram yet?
Sounds like bad memory to me
Try SimmTester
In the beginning there was the command line.
