I am VERY NEW to computers (Old, self).
This computer is a 1998 Compaq Pressario 5220 Desktop. Processor speed is only 387MHz with only 128 Mb of Ram (from what I've 'sort of learned' so far), so please bear with me....
Somehow (possibly mid-to-third week of January 2008), I lost some "programming" that pertains to my .NET Framework. Have tried through Microsoft Downloads to rectify (And buying "Idiot Books"), but still to no avail. Probably I am still not doing things correctly ........confusing to me.
I do know ( and have seen) that I am running Windows XP SP2,
And .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1
on this computer (according to my Control Panel) ALL PROGRAMS
But, each and every time I turn this computer ON......after I get past the WELCOME screen, I get an Error window that states "Lxddamon.exe-error Mscorees.dll not able to show error" (Because of a .dll error?)
I can either CLOSE or OK that window to go further.
I have Yahoo set as my Default Home Page (If that makes a difference) (?) Also, right now, only Classic Mail and IE6.
(Have IE7 in this computer, but not using it now....... Did not care for that Toolbar)
"Microsoft Help" has yet to give me any answers [Phones were Not Available today]
Any ideas for this necessary repair/ rectification are most welcome!!!!!!!!
First-time into Geeks-to-go, so please be gentle........
