On system with win98 which has previously been stable, I am now geting errors when I try to start programs like Word. I double click the icon and get a message saying that the program has caused a illegal operation and will be shut down then I get a message saying 'the program has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer'
I am the only user on this stand alone pc.
Anyone know how I can get rid of this message. Thanks
Thanks for the replies. I did mean MS Word from office'97. I've also noticed that when I boot up NAV will not start and says that it cannot initiate the virus scanning engine database. I will look at happy99exe virus and see if this is the cause
Thanks, almost all programs are giving the same response. Photoshop Elements, Word, Outlook Express. And yet Nero, Internet Explorer both work fine without any problems. I have just looked at the properties of the shortcut to Word and the whole of the 2nd tab showing file locations etc is blank and greyed out. I have tried starting it direct from the winword.exe file in explorer and get the same result.
I really don't want to lose the data on this system- is there a way to repair win98 without reinstalling it? TIA
this error normally occurs if normal.dot template is corrupted search for normal.dot and delete all entries found when you reopen word it will create a new normal.dot template but you will have to reset printer settings and any words you added to spell checker as its like opening word for the first time
