Re: my desktop computer
Have you attempted to boot into safe mode? (F8 at startup). If so, are you able to get in and use your keyboard?
You can *try* system restore if so, and that will restore any corrupted registry entries. After that, you should definitely check for Spyware with Spybot (http://www.spybot.com) and for viruses with AVG (http://free.grisoft.com).
If you've made it that far and the problem persists, your next step is to repair Windows. Boot the system with the Windows CD/DVD and follow the prompts. When asked whether to install or repair, choose repair. This restores all the system files (such as the dll file you're talking about), and that might fix you up.
If *that* doesn't work, you'll need to do a clean reinstall of Windows to get back up and running.

try running a test on the hdd.generally it comes up with the error code,in case not try disconnecting all the peripherals & try doing the FLEA POWER(After disconnecting the power source try pressing the power button for about 20 seconds,then try to restart the computer).
Dell are brilliant! I eventually found out that dell include a recovery mode in their initial build/set up. This was in microsoft technical articles. Soon after turning the power on press ctrl and f11. This then activates the dell recovery mode even when nothing else will work. On the disc provided by dell when you buy your computer is a program called norton ghost. It was this that allowed windows to boot up properly. I returned the computer to its original settings. I still get a black screen on boot up stating diskette search error and have to use f1 to complete boot up. Microsoft offer a solution to by un checking the related programs on the start up menu by typing various run commands. This might work but I'm not going to do it because my son's computer now works and i'm not risking anything.
Let me guess, you have a Dell? Went to an online forum, turns out everyone who received the same error message all had Dell computers. Some contacted adobe, and they redirected them to Dell. Some contacted Dell and they claimed that they do not support third party software, even though it comes preinstalled in Dell computers. Here is a link to the forum, read on.
