View Full Version : Explorer Problem

14-10-2003, 06:51 PM

I run Windows98 on a PII-350. Lately, I keep getting problems with IE5.5. The error message is:

EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
module TRACKURL79AD003C.DLL at 0177:02058bdb.

Would appreciate advice.

That TRACKURL portion of the error message suggests you have got some nasty spyware onboard.

Do you use Ad-aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/) or Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?lang=en&page=download)? If not, I would suggest you download either (or both) of them and give them a run. See if that helps.

Run SpyBot and/or Adaware you have a BHO (Browser Helper Object) of the no friendly variety, Clientman (http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/ClientMan.html). Check out this (http://www.spywareinfo.com/bhos/archives/2003_06.php) to find out what BHO's do and what legit (kind of) ones you may want to keep.

And update your browser.

OK, a quick bit of google hunting has led me to this site: ClientMan - parasite (http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/ClientMan.html). If you read the article you will notice the reference to:

[i]... If you have the Helper variant, you should see 'browserhelperX.dll' and 'trackurlX.dll', where X is a random eight-digit hexadecimal value. If you have the Tagger variant, you should have 'taggerbhoX.dll', 'trackurlX.dll' and 'searchrepX.dll'. In either variant, you may have further leftover DLLs from previous updates.[/il]

Your error message has this TRACKURL79AD003C.DLL - so try Ad-aware or Spybot first, and if that doesn't work, try some of the suggestions in that article.

Snap yourself, Jen :D. While I was Googling Traceurl...DLL you were posting, first time around ;)

BTW, Spybot helpfully lists the BHO's on your system, does Adaware?
