my daughters computer boots up ok but shows an error message cd_shell.dll not loaded this affects the cd rom in so much as it will not autorun for her games, the os is xp pro and i have run sfc /scannow and it goes through the system but does not repair the problem, i have deleted and reinstalled the cdrom, where can i find this dll and install it.

have you or some-one else installed something recently before this error surfaced????

This could be a file associated with a rogue program, virus or spyware..

I'd check your startup items uaing msconfig as I do not think that this a legit file

my daughter has loaded lots of different games so i could not be sure one of these did not cause the problem,

where would i be looking in msconfig and what would i look for.

If it says it's not loaded I can't see it being adware. I suggest you go here and see if you can download it or ask for advice click here. If you were looking in msconfig go to Start/Run/Type msconfig OK and look in the starup tab, but I'm not sur that is the answer
