Q. What are SHLWAPI.DLL Errors?
A. Several users have reported access violations in SHLWAPI.DLL. Most often under Windows 98 with IE 5.01 installed. It seems the solution lies in uninstalling Comet Cursor via Add/Remove Programs. Comet Cursor can be downloaded from many web sites and is also shipped in updates to Real Player. If the uninstall doesn't work, remove comet.dll manually.
