My computer has Windows XP,Home Edition Version 5.1.
Trying to run Internet Explorer:
The procedure entry point SHRegGetValueW could not be located in the dynamic link library SHLWAPI.dll.
Trying to Run Microsoft Outlook:
The application failed to initiatlize properly (0xc0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application.
Trying to connect to Update server:
I had trouble in February 2009 with Windows XP (at that point SP2 was installed) and tried a partial reinstal from original OEM disk (circa 2002), which might have gone beyond a partial install as now SP2 doesn't seem to be there anymore. After that, Microsoft software doesn't work anymore (Int. Explorer, MS Office). I can't connect to Internet because when I try to run Int. Explorer I get an error message.
I added Opera on, moving it from another computer with a USB stick, but Opera won't connect to Internet either and says "Could not locate remote Server" "check whether applications that rely on the same connection are working".
Any suggestions of how I can remedy this? Thanks.
