Sorry I could not be of more help,But that is all that I could find,I would have thought that someone out there may have been able to point you in the right direction.Hope you are able to get it sorted.
I am extremely grateful for all your help, although as yet have had no luck removing error 126, you have given me links which hopefully will provide me with the tools to remove it. If I am eventually successful I will let you know.
Buteman, your a genius,I did a search and discovered I had in fact installed Spywaredoctor, and done an uninstall via add and remove. The programme apparently requires one to uninstall from it's own file. I reinstalled and would you adam and eve it, no 126.
A massive thank you from one very grateful old un.
