I'm suddenly getting the above message and I can't get rid of it. I've unloaded and reloaded Internet explorer 6 countless times over the past 5 days as well as patches, updates, virus checks, bot checks, et al. and keep coming up with the same problem. My e-mail is affected too. "kernel32.dll", whatever that means, seems to come into play here as well. Anyone know anything about this?

kernel32.dll is a Windows core file.

Sounds like your installation got screwed up somehow.

You don't happen to have ZoneAlarm installed, do you?

This happened to me awhile back. Your "kernel32.dll" is bad. You need to go to the driver site and download a newer one. A real pain in the gazoo.

De-install Explorer and load a good browser like Firefox or Opera.

Download and use another browser, like Firefox or Opera,
both free (and more secure than MSIE).

If they also have the problem, then it isn't a browser
problem.

Is your virus check software up to date? It sounds like you've got something.

You also need to get a condom for IE; its a slut. Or better yet; practice safe surfing and lock it (IE) down and get Firefox.

I'm using Firefox right now - the beta 1.5 release seems to work; 1.07 doesn't.

Outlook Express 6 seems jazzed as well.

> You don't happen to have ZoneAlarm installed, do you?

What scenario did you have in mind?

... just fixed a problem with ZApro 6, where some earlier
update apparently nuked C:\WINNT\system32\msxml3.dll, and
XML-based dialogs, such as ZA's own Anti-Spyware panels,
no longer worked.

I had this. I have XP so I ran System Restore and set the wayback machine to a few days earlier when IE was working properly.

It does not necessarily mean that kernel32.dll has the problem - it could mean that something is supplying invalid data to calls into kernel32.dll (part of the OS).

I don't think it is possible to truly uninstall IE.

Here is one thing to try - open the Control Panel and double-click on Internet Options. In the Temporary Internet Files box, click on the Settings button, then the View Objects button. Right-click on every line that displays in the next window and choose Remove. (Don't worry - these are ActiveX controls and other objects that will automatically download and re-install when you need them.)

Then close the windows and try IE again.

You need a utilities cleaner along with a Firewall. Go by Walmart and pick up Defender Pro. It's $10 and will do the same thing as the $70 programs. It comes with an Internet firewall etc.. This should fix your issue..

Glad that so many folks know something about all this. These guys who make up these messages for your computer - always about an "illegal operation" or a "fatal flaw" - kinda amuse me. Like they're cops or some kind of tough guys.

I'd be interested to read what you have to say about zonealarm, also. I have it, and almost always get some zonealarm-related error (vsmon and others) at shutdown.....I'm so sick of waiting for scandisk to run at reboot....
