Faulty DLL ?

  iscanut 13:02 03 Dec 2003

On boot up am getting an error re Windows Explorer failing to load correctly. " Faulting application exporer.exe version 6.0.2800.1221 re faulting module shlwapi.dll version 6.0.2800.1276 "
I have 4 of these dll files on my PC, all slightly different sizes. One in ServicePackUninstall folder, one in System32 folder, one in ServicePack\i386 folder and one in Program Files\HP\HPPrintscreen\utility\uninstall.

Any ideas as to how to solve this error ? Reboot often sorts it out but it comes back now and again.
