This program has performed an illegal operation...

Hi i have a problem and i was wondering if anyone has any answers to it. Whenever i try to open a folder ie My Computer, My Documents or even Recycle Bin a bar pops up to tell me that "This program has performed an illegal operation, and will be shut down."
After clicking details it says that "EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in module VX2.DLL at 0187:Old90446." I've had this problem for a couple of months now and have tried all types of anti-viruses with no success. It could be that i have a corrupt file or some kind of bug, but i wouldnt know where to start in fixing it. I can dial-up to the internet and use programs such as MSN Messenger and Kazaa, but aswell as not being able to open folders i cannot visit webpages.
If anyone else has experienced this kind of problem and/or has a way of fixing it then i would be extremly gratefull for any help.
Thanks very much.

What O/S & EI are you using, as Win98/Ei V6 does not appear to use this Dll.
