When u receive a message with faults in Windows 98 SE concerning
kernel32.dll or shell*.dll, it could be that u have 2 versions of
CorelDraw installed. I encountered this problem when there were 2
versions installed, v.8 and 9.
Solution: I removed Coreldraw v.8 and the messages disappeared. I also
installed DirectX 9.0 and the most recent updates for Windows 98 and
Windows 98 SE except .NET update and other irrelevant language
updates.

Cheers,
Theo
