Hi, have you tried doing what it says? - download it again from the website.

may not have updated. Try this:-

1. Click 'Start' and 'Run' and then type:- msiexec /unreg

2. Click 'OK'.

3. Click 'Start' and 'Run' and type:- msiexec /regserver

4. Click OK

No guarantees, but try it.

no, still comes up with the error

What OS are you using - if XP I would try a System Restore back to an earlier time when your pc was all ok. No guarantee though. Or perhaps someone else will come up with a better idea.

Cheers.

I have to go now - cos I'm running a bath - may be back later.

Good luck anyway.

Cheers.
