When I boot up my computer nothing loads. It just keeps saying missing uxtheme.dll. I've managed to get into task manager using safe mode and then tried replacing uxtheme.dll with one on a disc and I get "cyclic redundancy check". So I can't delete the corrupted uxtheme.dll file or replace it.

Can I use my Windows XP disk to reinstall this file? Is there a way I can fix this problem?

Thanks for any help.

I fixed it myself. It took me awhile to figure out. I'll write what I did so maybe it'll help someone.

After using task manager through safe mode to access the files from my hard drive. It stopped working. Task manager would freeze whenever I clicked a tab.

I then decided the only way I could properly access my hard drive was to run it as a slave hard drive using my other computer. Once I successfully installed my hard drive as a slave I could then access the hard drive without it crashing and freezing. I used some programmes I have on a USB stick. File unlockers and programmes like that. None of these worked. I then did an error scan and it successfully deleted the corrupt uxtheme.dll file. I then copied the uxtheme.dll file from my current master hard drive. Pasted it in the system32 folder on the slave drive. Uninstalled the slave drive and inserted back into my computer (re-doing the jumpers of course!) and it works perfectly. Problem solved :)
