Perhaps someone will know the answer to this one. After using Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe) or Disk Defragmenter (defrag.exe) and I go to close them, I get the error..."program has performed an illegal action and will be closed". The programs actually work and complete thier actions fine. When I check the details of the log created I see the following (Disk Cleanup example shown, similar for Defragmenter)...

Win32 Kernel core component performed an invalid memory access.
Module Name: KERNEL32.DLL

Application Name: Cleanmgr.exe

Microsoft Windows 98 4.10.1998
Upgrade using Full OEM CD

I know there are a lot of Utilities out there that work better than the built-ins but I like everything clean and working.

I would suggest using System File Checker to check for corrupt/incorrect system files. You may need your original Windows CD for this to work.

Arrow Click on Start then Run
Arrow Type in sfc and press Enter
Arrow Put a dot in to Scan For Altered Files and click on Start

This will scan the system files and if it finds a problem will replace with the correct file.
