 windows won't run because of IE fault 0177:004 Post a Reply  
From: Paul on 01/18/2004
My computer boots but when I log into Win98 I get this fault error. The mouse still moves around the window, but I can't run anything without the start button. I saw another posting but they all are fixed while running windows. "EXPLORER HAS CQAUSED AN INVALID PAGE FAULT IN MODULE EXPLORER.EXE AT 0177:004401f31". Can anyone help me with command pronmpts to fix this? or is there commands for windows that might work when no start nbutton is available. Thanks

FYI, found this on another site. Good Luck!

I had this problem going from ie4.0 to ie5.5 in windows 98. Here is how I recovered.
-Booted into command prompt holding cntl key at boot
-went into c:\windows\command and ran edit
-editted the system.ini in c:\windows
-change the shell from explorer.exe to winfile.exe
-reboot and the pc will look like windows 3.1
-reinstall ie 5.5 from cd by clicking on the ie5setup.exe on the cd (you may have to play with typical vs full install)
-reboot as suggested but boot in SAFE MODE by holding cntl
-once in winfile edit the system.ini again and change shell back to explorer.exe
-reboot making sure again to go into safe mode
-windows will grind for a while changing settings
-once in normal desktop shutdown
-reboot in normal mode
-windows will update drivers quickly then all clear

NOTE: At some point I also updated the demon dll's (msvcrt, msvcrt20 and msvcrt40) from another machine.
