windows cryptographic servce will not start

  lolod 15:44 14 Apr 2010

Hi I am running Windows XP . I recently tried to install a printer on my Dell Pc, got so far with the installation then had a message to enable Windows Cryptograhic Service..... but when i tried to start this it stopped maybe halfway and i had an error message
Error 193:Oxc1

Further investigaton suggests that this may be a problem with a corrupt Regserv 32 initpki.dll.
I have tried to repair/replace this .dll this but nothing short of paying $59 for a 'Repair' programme has worked.

Has anyone any ideas possible solutions ?
Thanking you etc

Take a look at this LINK - the bottom of the page one from Microsoft explains how to fix Windows Cryptograhic Service - follow the instructions very carefully - back up your registry first (instructions on how to do that are also shown)
