Hi all at GeekstoGo.com, the first place i go with my comp problems!

I have a Windows 2000 PC with SP4 installed. I ran a windows update, as i do when it says they are avaiable. Once i restarted (update requested it) i recieved two errors:

1. MSTask.exe-entry point not found. The procedure entry point FindExecutableW could not be located in the dynamic link libary SHELL32.dll.

2. User interface failure. The Logon User Interface DLL msgina.dll failed to load.

I atempeted to use my windows 2000 cd to repair the problem with no luck (I may be doing something wrong, i have more knowledge of win98se)

Thanks in advance for all the help!

I'm sorry, I do not know what you mean by that...was this a repair option in the start menu, or did you boot with a windows cd, and enter R to run a repair?

Maybe the repair option on the Windows disk will work and I'm just doing it wrong. If someone could walk me through it that would help.

the process is identical to the xp one

http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html

if you did not do that, then do this first

start > run
sfc /scannow
<enter>

Have your windows cd ready

also, if you did do the repair above, did you reapply the service packs ?

Well I got a little too excited and thought the reinstall of windows was working as you stated in your last post/tutorial. It went through and deleted folders and began coping the new ones back in when a window popped up:



Digital Signature Not Found-

The Microsoft digital siginature affirms that the software has not been altered since it was last tested.

The software you are about to install does not contain a Microsoft digital siginature. Therefore, there is no guarantee that the software works with Windows.

AC'97 Friver for Intel® 82801AA Controller



Then it went on to say i could visit windows update to see if there was a digigitally signed version of the software and wanted to know if i wanted to continue installation, this would not be a problem but as soon as the window popped up i lost mouse and keyboard controll so i can't click or tab to yes. HELP!

rerun the install, but before you do, drop into your PCs BIOS and set the audio controller to disabled.

That worked! Thanks! But there was another problem that normaly wouldn't be one. it asked to verify my regonal settings and keyboard settings. They were fine as set but again i didn't have mouse or keyboard control to click or tab to yes. is there something else i can disable in bios?



Thanks again for all your help
