I have seen a similar error in the past related to WIn98 and the removal of network componets. What OS are you using, and what major changes have you made to your system before this error started happening. Did you install any Norton Utilities type programs, or uninstall any software you may have had on the system? The user.exe file is linked to your registry and any major changes to the system will sometimes corrupt this file or the registry.
: Whenever I try to open "Internet Explorer" or "My Computer" this error comes up. These are the details:
: EXPLORER caused a general protection fault
: in module USER.EXE at 000a:00002730.
