My 98SE will not boot up beyond first 'Windows' screen and advises that the above DLL can not be found - reinstall Windows. Is there any way of obtaining/reinstalling this DLL without a complete Windows reinstallation and,if so, how?. Regards.

Downloaded the missing file and copied to Windows 'system' overwriting existing file. (Thanks VoG) Still no boot - PC has now come up with a bigger and better refusal - "SHELL32DLL file is linked to missing export SHLWAPI.DLL:SHRegGetUSValueA" that should be continous beween quotes but this box also has a mind of its own. As I haven't the faintest idea what that means I think I'll find a quiet corner and hide. TTFN

Thanks again VoG. That lot should keep me out of mischief for a while - there are 30 or so pages of 'suggestions' - I often wonder how you helpful souls can come up with a fist full of useful URLs on practically any subject at short notice. Regards
