I have windows 98 on my PC. Recently when I click on a shortcut icon to open a new application after computer has been logged in to Internet for a while I get a pop up window that says:

"This program has performed an illegal operation"

The computer does not freeze but I have to close Internet explorer in order to be able to open the other application. After the new application is open I can open explorer again and everything works. I would appreciate any help to resolve this problem.

Welcome to Tech Support Forums curious

Have you installed any new software lately, If so this could be the problem.

True.

As Speedo said, software istallation may cause a conflict of resources (one program may not "like" the modifications made by another program). You may also try to get some utilities to check for that. I personally use Norton System Works and it has helped me a lot. But there are other ones as good as that or perhaps better (let me know if you find one!).
