So no, not really.

NO! That is one of the main DLL files used for Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Application Programming Interface (API)... you get rid of those and most of your apps won't work (namely Windows based apps like EXPLORER) so DON'T TOUCH THAT!

LOL Funniest thing I've seen all day
and believe me, I've seen a fair few today . . . I've been in Tech_Gen & N00bs for the past 6 hrs

kernel32.dll is the main windows core component, akin to the brain.
Nothing will work without it! They don't call it the kernel for nothing.

invalid page faults in kernel32 doesn't mean the problem's with kernel32.dll (unless it's been infected with a virus), but more than likely, these errors are caused by anything from:
poorly written programs, poor quality/incorrect hardware drivers, a virus, hardware failure, a corrupt registry.
Fix all these potential causes and the error messages will go away.

dont listen to them.

windows can run without kernel32, open it in notepad and erase line 12, chars 1-4 and 7-22. that will fix everything


by the way. by "fix" i mean critically screw up your system, but it will run for about 10 mins after you save changes and reboot, its hella fun sitting there look at the apps die one by one till finally you get the blue screen of death(or in my case the black-screen-with-green-letters-of-death)

Backup ALL your important data.
Reformat and reinstall windows.

I'd never normally say that, but in your case, if you're so desperate that you've got to fuck with key system files that 99% of users don't even know exist, then this may be the only solution. And then install a decent virus killer and keep up with windowsupdate.com because micro$oft are always patching the holes in the sieve they call an operating system.

There's no need to tell me when I'm right;
I operate on that principle exclusively and with absolute certainty

DO NOT reformat.
exit to pure DOS (if you can; if not, get some bootdisk), delete "c:\
windows" and "c:\program files", then install windoze. that's all. why kill all your main hdd partition / all your hdd ?

And now look at what we got. Keyboards, Monitors who knows what else. People even get their own personel for there exclusive use only machines.
Give me a porta punch and a line printer any day. Programers were programers then and everyone was glad of it. The joyful cries as you pricked you fingers for the tenth time that day, the colourful curses as you dropped 500 carefully sorted punched cards down the stairs, the jolly screams of the small boys as they were kicked into the flailing entrails of the printer to sort out the paper jams.
Ahh ... Those were the days.

punch cards?
i remember when we just had plain cards, no punches

oh, wait, sorry,
i never even LEARNED how to use dos, skipped straight from mac's to windows 95

my boss at work was telling me a few months back about how when he first started programming, it was all command lines and you'd have to hire ppl to do such simple things like doing word processors

When I started to learn to program it was basic and rpg. I thought all that was exciting. I was so "on top" of the whole computer thing. Now my computer owns me. I guess I am just too lazy to keep up with the times.

Well you can atually rewrite KERNEL32.DLL

First thing to do: get eXeScope (don't know where to get one, email me for one at the worst end (trail, saves just once)) and try messing with imports 'n' outs, maybe you'll be able to do something, or you can learn visual -basic -c++ -j++ -VSS and debug it with full power of microsoft's software that gives everybody his power or meet some people like tHeBill$ or -=+[SPY ACTIVE]+=- 'nd they will teach you how to get latest ver's of ms's server.

DOS is the most stable platform for a Pc EVER. have you ever seen DOS crash? no. have you ever seen a program in dos that does not require over 746k of RAM? no.

there are programs for dos that look exactly like their windows counterpart. yet they never crash, use up 746k of internal RAM, and use the mouse the same way as windows. it is almost impossible to get a virus for it, because no-one wants to. windows is the most bulked-up, spyware, bloatware, absolute shit-ware, program there was ever made for a PC. it take up on average about 20 megs of RAM, at the moment it holds 468 megs of my hard drive, which dos only takes up less than 10. there has never been a person on this planet that has not had windows crash once. 3.1 was better than 95, ffs.

i suppose this is drifting off subject a bit, but stick with dos, and you will never have any problems with your PC. EVER.

use the search, that's what it's there for.

also, overclocking your CPU too much can cause kernel32.dll errors, I know this from experience . So make sure your CPU isnt running too hot.

I couldn't agree with you more DOS is fantastic - anyone remember VisiCalc, and what about IBM's DisplayWrite - a staple part of any office in the 80s.
