Well I did the update yesterday, and since, my computer has been acting very weird, explorer doesn't respond, I can't open my computer all the time and can't open folders etc.

Clicking on Start and then on any program causes the start bar to hang and stay on the screen.

Shutting down takes forever, and things in general have been rather sluggish, saying things like Ccapp?, Run*32.dll end task, and on other files, which I'll try to note down if any of this makes sense :tazz:

Hope someone can help :)

Nope, didn't do that...but I have since gone and installed all previous updates and reinstalled the latest update, and it hasn't fixed the problem.

The computer boots up okay and seems to work okay until I use something explorer related, start bar sometime hangs and going through my computer for instance, but as soon as I ctrl/alt/del explorer, the puter seems okay, well using FF, Trillian, just can't then use explorer to open files etc, which is a bit of a chore.

When I shut down, it tends to either stutter on explorer or rundll32.exe...I'm starting to think it might be something bad, but I don't want to do a format and reinstall of windows...

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes


You will still have the option to repair XP which leaves the data alone

I did the first part, wasn't asked for a reboot, but I take it I'll have to do a windows xp repair then?

Doesn't that wipe the windows update and such?

Repair will remove the windows updates

The current data and settings will remain

You can use these to repair XP

XP Repair Install

Or here if you are unable to run XP Repair Install

Alternative XP Repair Install Method

Use Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, from the list, which uses a slightly different method

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update

Eeek...I think I'll see if I can figure out this streamlined XP cd first...might be easier than having all those updates again *l*

Thanks for all the help, much appreciated :tazz:
