When Mozilla 1.0 is launched with QuickLaunch module OS is crushed several times per day. I get 2 kind of errors: 1) SysFader: Explorer.exe - memory couldn't not be read and 2) Explorer.exe - memory couldn't not be read After pressing OK button I get blank screen (no screen of the death) and should as minimum re-login, but sometimes I should re-boot my PC. Yes, I know that this bug may be raised by another application, but QuickLaunch acts as a catalizer - without QuickLaunch it happens once per week.
Probably you are loading too many programs at the start of windows, and Mozilla just tries to eat some more megs. Saying that this happens once per week without using Mozilla is a sign that you should try to clean up you PC. You can try to use a more recent nightly and maybe buying some more ram (what are you machine specs? )
I think that 396Mb RAM is quite enough. You may find some additional info about similar bug here http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/win2000/n1020125925. (Unfortunatelly Microsoft says nothing about SysFader). About cleaning PC: I completelly re-instaled windows not so far. And without launching Mozilla this bug raises only during shutdown process. Could You give me some recommendations about localizing this bug?
Sorry, I thought that maybe you had only 64 Mb. I suppose that you have already tested the suggestions found in that thread, but I would advice you to also add your comments there, asking in two places is better that doing it in only one :-) I don't have enough experience to trace problems in w2k, but one safe suggestion is to run ad-aware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/downloads.html as some programs are really nasty and install anything in your computer. And as the problem seems related to IE, go to Add/remove programs, select internet explorer and choose "Repair Internet explorer" (you though that I was gonna suggest the other option ;-)

Summary: QuickLaunch crushes OS → QuickLaunch crashes OS
I tested my memory, repaired IE, checked my PS for spyware - nothing helps :( As a fact I can't work with Mozilla, because of system crashes happen very often. Yes, it is not Mozilla bug, but _my system_ is not compatible with it :( So, I will waiting SP3 for Win2K and then again will try to install Mozila. Thanks a lot, Artyem.
Sp3 is out now afaik. Also, try a recent Mozilla-Nightly (NOT 1.1beta, it had a bug in the quicklaunch).
Has there been any more testing since SP3 came out? Is this problem persisting?
No response to the questions. Probably the problem went away. pi
