I'm running Windows 98 on an old lap-top and when I try to open IExplorer 6 or Mozilla browsers, error messages saying "Illegal Operation - must shut down" or something like this. Do I need to re-install? I've re-installed already but the same problem continues. My browsers will not open.

More detail's needed before we can begin. On a side note I'd suggest IE 7.

IE7 only runs on Vista, XP SP2. Windows 2003 Sp1, or later.
