press ctrl + c
then
do start > run > explorer.exe
then double click on c:
then double click on windows

When I do this start > run > explorer.exe My documents folder comes up. I don't see the C: to double click on. Never mind I found it. But which system folder, .CB, .DAO, .DAT, .INI?

Click Start then Run and type system and click "Ok".

That should open the System folder...that's the folder we need to put the file in...don't close it.

Just as a note, this repair was completed in a Go to Meeting session between myself, dsennete, and tlcfromtn. The missing file was replaced in the proper folder and all is well with the world again! :tazz:

Thanks, dsennette, for the great idea and the assistance rendered!!

Gald you are back up and running, tlcfromtn... :)
