Can't edit registry

  s99Raj 19:15 24 Jul 2003

I have XP Professional and every time I go to Run/regedit/OK I get the following message :

"This application failed to start because clb.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I've tried reinstalling/repairing XP but get the same message. I've been to click here
for the appropriate dll file but the site seems to be very unclear as to what to do from there. I've tried double-clicking, copying, downloading but nothing seems to work. I assume it goes in the System32 folder.

Thank you for any advice.

It is in my System32 folder.

Oh, and it is 11KB in size.

VoG - don't suppose you could e-mail me a copy of your clb.dll ?

And from spikeychris yesterday 'Don't forget to shove it in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder.'

Yeah it goes in S32 as it says when you click here

Download the DLL file to desktop. Type system32 into run. Drag and drop the file into S32 DO NOT COPY THE FILE ACROSS.
