Hi There

Im new to this & this is my 1st post, but was wondering if anyone could help me with an error I keep experiencing. Iam running WinME on a 1ghz/p3, 40gb, 128mb system. Just today everytime I startup and then go to play a song (using Sonique) I get this error:

Explorer has caused an error in Kernel32.dll
Explorer will now close
If you have anymore problems, please try restarting your computer

Then the system kind of crashes & some of the programs in the righthand shortcut menu (i.e the ones that comeup on startup) disapear. The ones that disapear are Volume control, Sonique, Memory Monitor, Popup Killer and also my Internet Connection icon. The only ones that remain, everytime are Nortons AV & Zonealarm Pro.

The only things I can think of that may have changed is that I have installed a couple of programs recently, Paltalk & Cool Edit Pro. Iam not sure wether these would effect things or not? I have virus checked & done some other checking of the system, with no results.

I have also searched through lots of tech websites & I dont seem to see the exact same error, alot of similar ones but I havent found the answer. Any suggestions on this problem would be very much appreciated.

Thanks - Buffy :)

I think that it's Nortons AV. Remove it. You could try to install it later on.
