Restoring missing dll file - Help!

  User-83E74221-59BB-44B9-B3984A44B4CD68B1 17:27 01 Nov 2003

Since installing Freeserve broadband, I now get an error message when booting up, which I have to close to get onto the desktop. The message says: msnp32.dll. The system cannot find the file specified. Some or all of the following features not available: Microsoft Network.

I can extract the file from my W98 SE CDRom using System File checker, but I don't know where to put it to stop the error message appearing.

Any suggestions? My pc seems to be running fine and the broadband is great. I also had boot up messages saying vredir.vxd and dfs.vxd were missing, but I seem to have fixed this, again by using file checker and restoring the files.

Any help would be appreciated.

Extract from disc and load into c:/windows/system

If the DLL is missing, replace it to your windows system folder.

Remove the Client for Microsoft Network.

Click on My Computer,Control Panel,Network.
Click on Client for Microsoft Networks then Click on Remove.

You may get a message that states your network is not complete.

Disregard and Restart the Computer.

Sorry for what is probably a basic question!!
I have suffered from the Blaster Virus which eventually required me to remove my
hard drive and install it in another computer to backup my files and remove the
virus. When I re-installed the drive I had difficulties in repairing Windows and
so I installed a new copy of XP on the same drive, but in a different folder.
This has worked and my files are safe, however I want to restore my original
desktop. Is there any software or program that would allow me to transfer my
original programmes to my new desktop without the need to re-install the
original software - some of which I no longer have?
