Hi Elaine,

Kernal32.dll is the heart of Windows, so you can't get rid of it :)

The "kernal" is the central program of the operating system. DOS, all=
 versions of Windows, Unix, all versions of Linux, etc. all have a kernal.=
 The kernal32.dll file is the 32-bit kernal for Windows from Windows 95 on.

Because it is so central to everything Windows does, you'll frequently get=
 error messages reported in kernal32.dll, even when the actual error was=
 caused by some other program.

The Windows knowledge base at http://windows.support.com has numerous=
 examples of kernal32.dll error messages and what their possible causes=
 are. You can look up the exact error message you're getting, or post it=
 here and one of us can try to help you troubleshoot it.

Can you identify some common element to the errors? In other words, do you=
 get the error while running the same program every time or after doing a=
 particular thing? What is the exact error message you're getting?

Also, we need to know the version of Windows you're running.
