Don't know how but I am missing the INETCOMM.DLL and the MSOE.DLL Would it be better to do a restore point (have back up cd from Jan.2010) or would it be easier to just re-install it? If installed where would I go to do this?

Thanks

The best option would be to run System File Checker to have Windows automatically re-install missing system files.
Vista Start > Run/Search> SFC /Scannow

You could also just as easily update to Vista Service Pack 2 :)

OK did this again (The right way) and now it is denying me access to it in both command prompt and C file. Where do I go from here? Any help here is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Not sure how you ran sfc but I'm including instructions.

Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
Type in: sfc /scannow
Click OK (Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Flyupload, and post download link.


If you don't have Windows CD....
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start and then Run
type in regedit and click OK


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


Thanks to Broni for the instructions

Hey rshaffer61 and thanks for responding quickly. I have vista. When I tic on the link you posted for flyupload it came up with a message that it was an unknown DNS name. I use Firefox would that make a difference? Why am I being denied access to the logs?
Thanks

Hi, I still can not open it no matter what. It gives an option to open in note pad or Firefox. It won't open in note(access denied)should I try the Firefox? When I try to do the Media it tells me I don't have admin rights to do this.

Did you receive this message when SFC finished?

"Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

Sorry for the time gap. I don't remember seeing it but, that doesn't mean it wasn't there. Want me to run it again and see if it shows?

Go to
Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Let me know if this fixes the problem

Ok! So what happen is that I have a vista so it came up a little diferrent but still worked just the same. When I put the chkdsk /r into the search bar(run on xp)the first time it popped up a DOS window then disepeared just that quick. Did it again and it stayed up this time and gave me a warning about not finding the F section ????? I'm sure you would understand it.It then proceeded to run but only did 3 stages as to the 5 you mentioned. Still it seems to work a lot better now. Now I don't have to stop what I am doing to paste and copy the email address for him when he is checking for jobs. This is the very first time he is using the computer for something other then playing cards.Been on him for 3 years now. But at least he is making an honest attempt to do it on his on.

Thank you so much for the help :) . Still don't understand why it would not allow me access to the logs.Oh well!
