This is a microsoft file that can be downloaded from the Internet
msnp32.dll

You need to unzip this file then copy it to your windows system folder.
Save the file to your desktop
Double click my computer
Double click C: drive
Double click on the windows folder
This should give a warning
Click on show files
Find the folder called SYSTEM double click
You should get the same warning
Click on show files
Minimise the window (NOT CLOSE)
click on the msnp32.dll file once
Right click > copy
Reopen the minimised system file click inside the window once
right click & paste
Reboot - any more errors?

My main problem with this computer now is that I can't get it on the internet, that is why I had to get the network card.

The network card is from Network Everywhere, Model No. NC100U-WM. I'm not sure about installing Microsoft Network, I've never heard of it.

Can I copy this file I need from my other computer on disc and then load it on to the BAD computer?

Yes, their is a listing Client for Microsoft Network.

Now I'm having trouble copying the msnp32.dll to disc. On my good computer is shows it copied, I take it down to the other one and nothing is there. Now if I copy the one that needs to be unzipped, it shows up but I can't open it.

I copied the file you sent me to a floppy. I took it to the other computer and it showed nothing on it. I went to the download on the internet and copied that to the floppy. I copied the winzip onto a cd. I was able to download the winzip onto the BAD computer. Now when I put in the floppy to open the msnp32.dll, it keeps saying "There is no viewer capable of viewing Application Extension Files." I can't seem to copy the msnp32.dll straight to the computer.

If you have a floppy drive on the new computer
run winzip and when it ask you where to extract file to point to the floppy drive
Then check the floppy drive is the file on there

I go to my documents where my winzip file and it won't do anything. Tell me how to just start over because I'm obviously doing something wrong.
