I was curious as to anyone who has had issues running applications that are recieving a

component "shdocvw.dll" or one of its dependancies not correctly registered. File is missing or invalid

For other programs, i get a similar message with a "runtime error 339"

Is there anything in particular I should do to eliminate this error so my programs will start up??

Thanks

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot


Try to start the services

This task will obviously take some time. I am working with Windows support right now to also clear up the issue.

I dont think that this will neccessarily fix the DLL issues Im having, which may also be contributing to some programs not installing or even running correctly at all. But Im hoping that this is a start.

Give me 24 hours and I will have this task hopefully completed.

regards,

It replaces the system files, so worth a go, the next thing would be a repair install, this leaves data and programmes intact
