I had major issues with my computer a few weeks ago, but thanks to you guys, everything works grand. :whistling:

Today I clicked MY COMPUTER and I got an alert from Rundll32.exe, reporting that WTSAPI32.dll was missing and couldn't be located. I have no clue what that means. The same alert pops up when I click on AIM. I click "ok" then AIM runs fine.

I don't think it's causing any problems, but it's really irritating to see it pop up all the time.

Another problem, which I think might be related to this is that whenever I plug in my iPod, it isn't recognized by my computer. I have iTunes set to open when I plug the device in, but all that shows up is the E drive window. I reinstalled iTunes and during the setup process, an alert says that "this windows installer package is damaged" or something like that. Then it back-tracks the installation, but still continues and seems fine. Then I have to reinstall iTunes whenever I want to charge my iPod, or update it. It's ridiculous. I thought my iPod was the issue, but I'm 99.9% sure that it's my computer now that's causing the problem.

I've used multiple USB cables and ports and nothing helps.

Any ideas?

well there are a few possiblities. I think an xp repair is first thing to try, then we can move on to any other issues.
