Hello, I recently uninstalled software for my scanner and ever since when I try to
open IE or Netscape I get a "this program has performed an illegal operation and will close"
message. I ran Dr Watson and it is telling me that a .dll file is missing or has been freed.
I did a Norton scan and the only problem it found was a missing mscoree.dll.
Is this my problem or do I need to chuck this thing in the dumpster.
It is a Windows 98 system.
Thanks for the help, I`m lost. :thumbsup:

Try using System File Checker (SFC).

You said you just uninstalled a scanner.
Could be the cause of the missing .dll file.
dll-files.com - FAQ

Q: Why do my dll-files suddenly disappear?
A: Dll-files are usually used by a lot of different programs. Then when you remove the program using an uninstall utility, it removes all files it installed during the installation progress and also the dll-files used by the program that are also used by other programs.


You can download that .dll here:
mscoree.dll
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA

Ok, that fixed my mscoree problem. Now the error says netscape trying to illegally access memory. :thumbsup:
I`m going to try and dowload Netscape to this computer and copy it to my screwed up one.

I installed a newer version of Netscape but still have the problem.
Apparently I am missing some windows system files.
