I have a Dell Dimension 4500; Pentium 4 CPU 2.00 GHz; 1.99 GHz; 256 MB of RAM
Did a virus scan and Spybot and Ad Aware check today before starting the reinstall. All clear.
My computer has been very slow to start up (and just generally not as quick as it once was) for months and I finally took the plunge to try reinstalling. These errors came up during the reinstallation of XP and I didn’t know what to do... There weren’t any options, just to click OK.
Sub component com+ raised an exception while processing the OC_COMPLETE-INSTALLATION Setup message. d:\nt\com\comlx\src\complussetup\csetuputil.cpp (line 3406) Error Code 0X8007007f
The specified procedure could not be found. Failed to load the library 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\catsrv.dll
An error occurred loading “C:\Windows\System32\inetcomm.dll” The file may not have been installed or it has been corrupted.
An error occurred loading “C:\ProgramFiles\OutlookExpress\msoe.dll” The file may not have been installed or it has been corrupted. (I have uninstalled Outlook Express – I think....)
Then at the end of the Whole Process my Dell owner’s manual says there is supposed to be a Welcome to Microsoft screen with a green arrow icon at the bottom. I couldn’t find the arrow. Just stared at the screen without figuring out what I could do then turned the computer off.
When turned back on all my files seem to still be here. That was a big relief. The computer is as slow or EVEN SLOWER at startup than before I reinstalled.
Any ideas about what might help me now? I am trying to remain patient. I did do a MS update after reinstalling.
The last time I shutdown there was an error about devl? or something like that .dll.
Any ideas would be VERY welcome. Carol
