I keep getting the following error message: " The MSNAPPAU.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL ConvertStringSecurityDesciptorToSecurityDesciptorW." I looked for the file and couldn't find it, so googled it and found a place to d/l it. I did so and thought i put it where it was supposed to go (Windows\System), but that hasn't corrected the problem. I am still getting that message. Can anyone help with this?

Check for a newer version of MSN Messenger and include the toolbar if you previously did

Otherwise, uninstall then re-install it

Since I don't use MSN Messenger, I simply deleted it using Norton Clean Sweep, but I am still getting the same message. Any other ideas? :tazz:

Can you use search to look for the files using my computer as the location

You may need to re-install MSN Messenger, including the toolbat then use add and remove to uninstall it
