The uninstall went fine, when rebooting I received the message, "the browselc.dll file is either damaged or missing". My only option was to click OK. After doing this I get the Windows logo screen, then have to enter my network logon info, and can hear the windows music playing as the desktop should be coming up. But no desktop loads, no start button, task bar, or icons. Right and left clicking on the "desktop" give no results. Same thing happens in Safe Mode
I've booted to a DOS prompt, run scan disk (no problems found) and used scanreg to try to install an earlier version of the registry. This does not correct the problem. I have run a C:\dir command from the DOS prompt and all the windows files appear. I have also copied another copy of the browselc.dll file into the C:\windows\system32 folder. This has not helped recover the desktop either.
Reformatting is not an option.
Any help recovering my Win ME desktop would be greatly appreciated
