When you double-click My Computer from the desktop, or after you upgrade to Internet Explorer 5 or Internet Explorer 5.01 while sitting idle at the desktop, you may receive one of the following error messages:

"IEXPLORE caused a General Protection Fault in module Webcheck.dll "

"Explorer caused an exception 6d007fh in module Webcheck.dll at {memory address} "

This behavior can occur if the following files are the incorrect version of 4.72.3110.0







In some cases, the following files could also be the incorrect versions:




The files should be version 5.00.2314.1000 (for Internet Explorer 5) or version 5.00.2919.6304 (for Internet Explorer 5.01)
