My usually reliable XP2 system has let me down over the weekend and I am unable to boot it successfully. The XP CD and an Acronis Recovery CD have both been tried but I end up with the following messages:
Winlogon.exe: Unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because Shell32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. (It didn't.)
Error loading Shell32. The scheduled module could not be found.
Specific Error Code is 2.
Does anyone know of a workaround/cure for this problem?
I'm going out for an hour or so but will check back later.
