Okay, in DOS I typed in all of that, and it said File Not Found - OLEAUT32.DLL

But, I clicked Start>Find>Files or Folders and searched for it, it's in Windows. What am I doing wrong?

That happened when you typed?

copy C:\OLEAUT32.DLL C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OLEAUT32.DLL

The only thing that can give you that error if there is no source file. Menaing you didn't have a replacement in C:\

An English version of Oleaut32.dll is available here: http://www.dll-files....shtml?oleaut32

Download it to the C:\ directory and use the command to replace the old one with it.

Okay, I got it downloaded to C:

It's a Zip file, do I need to extract it?

Sorry for dumb questions, but I don't want to make any wrong moves.

Use the command like this:

copy /Y C:\OLEAUT32.DLL C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OLEAUT32.DLL

That should suppress the prompt to overwrite

You are doing this from DOS so the file is not in use, right?

I'm doing this from the Dos Prompt window. Do I need to restart the computer in MS Dos completely? I'm getting confused now.

Yes. You'll have to boot to DOS or the file will be in use.

Excellent job.

Usually these files get replaced or damaged by malware.

Please do have a look at my site about removing and preventing spyware.
