I am running Win 98SE and have standard Kbd and wheel mouse. Because of a number of other disparate problems I did a complete unpartitioning of C:\ recently. Generally all is ok except that on occasions the kbd sticks in the middle of a word and the only way to clear problem seems to be to delete by backspacing and reinputting. Last night at shutdown no ay would clicking on start to bring up shutdown do anything so I had to switch off at box; control/alt/de; was also ine ffective. Help please.

Since writing I found through system file checker (that I got to trmrmber from another article on helproom) that one of my newly loaded system files was corrupt. But I soon found that my problem had not been solved by this. I have also had further problems with surfing and I wonder if there nay be a connection of this new fault to the original faults outlined. New message is " Explorer caused an invalid page fault in module URLMON.DLL at 0177:77065552

Sounds like Explorer may be at the root of your problems. Did you do a fresh instal of 98?

First put your Win98se disc in comp stop it loading, then go to Start\Run type SFC and run the program to look for corrupt files

Graham: yes I did fresh install od Win 98. I havw reverted to IE and OEc 5 when I did reformat as I thought may be the problem had arisen through changing to IE/OEx 6. I was workong on adage ; if it ain;t broke, don't fix it.

Woosdchip: See my previous postings. I had used sfrc and corrected a corrupt system filw.folder. I tied it again when error message re urlmonm appeared but nothing advsesrse wasd found.
