"framedyn.dll" not found...can't do System Restore

  barnetbird 09:56 16 Sep 2006

For some unknown reason, when I attempted to create a restore point the following message came up:-

rstrui.exe - Unable to Locate Component
This application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Any help would be much appreciated!

if xp try sfc /scannow and have your disk ready to replace any corrupt/missing files.

Too late - and my link didn't work as well as VoG™'s

I've tried the methods outlined on the link VoG provided; however, nothing worked.

Alas, I purchased my Dimension through Dell and wasn't provided with a disk for XP Home Edition. I was hoping I could resolve the issue without reverting to Dell, despite having an extended warranty.

Thanks for your help.

You can try downloading it from click here

It needs to go in the c:\windows\system32\wbem folder.

With a little bit more tinkering, I've solved the problem. Although I couldn't find the framedyn.dll the first time I searched for it, I rebooted and tried again, locating it successfully! After copying it to system32, I'm happy to say everything is back to normal.

I can't imagine what happened to cause the problem in the first place as I've hardly used my PC in the last couple of days and only visited the same sites I normally do (no problem prior to then). But problem solved, end of!

Thanks again for your help; much appreciated!
