SeaMonkey (both the browser and e-mail) randomly crashes with the error
message that gkgfxwin.dll caused a fault and the program has to be shut
down. Sometimes I can restart it, sometimes I get the error message just
after it displays the splash screen. I tried installing a different
version of gkgfxwin.dll and it just hangs on the splash screen; I assume
it can't read the .dll file. I put back the original version and
restarted Windows and it works again.
This started happening in SeaMonkey v1.1.16 after I had been using it
for several weeks, so I upgraded to v1.1.17 but the problem persists.
I didn't find any other reports on the forum so have to assume it's
something stupid I did to cause this.
Windows XP Professional Media Center SP2
Pentium D 3.00 GHz
3.5 GB RAM
It has to be a Windows XP problem. Since I posted the above message I've
gotten errors about ntdll.dll, js3250.dll, gklayout.dll, rdf.dll, and
In Internet Explorer I've seen errors involving mshtml.dll and jscript.dll.
Looks like it may be reinstall time.
