tried renaming explorer.exe like microsoft's knowldege base told me to and when i tried getting on again it said something like "could not find explorer.exe, you must re-install windows". so i renamed it back to explorer.exe and got the same message i had been getting before about "invalid page fault in module explorer.exe...." when i tried to get on.
i've been told that if i have a windows 98 disk, my computer would use the explorer.exe from that to load and i could extract a new copy of explorer.exe from the disk. how much would it cost to get a windows 98 disk? i'm pretty sure we don't have one.
