It basically means that the original location for that shortcut has been moved, I recommend deleting that shortcut going to the original file and right clicking, select create new shortcut > desktop.

When i go to log in on my pc a notice comes up saying i need to reinstall framedyn.dll but dont know how


  1. Open your default Web browser. Search the Internet for a download location for a working version of framedyn.dll, or just follow the link in the Resources section below to download it from a reliable location.
  2. Click the download link and follow the prompts that appear onscreen to save the file to your hard drive. When the file finishes downloading, double-click it to open it in your computer's default program for compressed files. Click the "Extract" or "Unzip" button in this program, and select your desktop as the destination for the file when prompted. This will extract framedyn.dll to your desktop.
  3. 3 Double-click the "My Computer" icon and browse to the Windows system folder. The exact location of this folder varies among the different versions of Windows. In the original 32-bit versions of Windows XP and Vista, the system folder is located at "C:\Windows\System32." If you're using the 64-bit versions of Windows XP or Vista, navigate to "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" instead. If you're using Windows NT or Windows 2000, look for "C:\WINNT\System32." In the oldest Windows operating systems that use this file, including Windows ME, 95 and 98, the system folder is located at "C:\Windows\System."
  4. Left-click and hold the framedyn.dll file on your desktop and drag it into the system folder. Release the mouse button. If the original framedyn.dll file was missing, you won't see any Windows prompts. If it is present but corrupted, you will see a Windows prompt asking you if you would like to replace the existing file. If this happens, click "Yes."
  5. Reboot your computer.

The automatic update for windows has found several patches to install,however i cannot get them to install. how important is it to continue installing these patches.


http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ download the latest version and run it to clean all unwanted files and junk in your computer...

And then follow the step's below:

Method 1
Download and install Windows Installer 3.1 and reboot.


Method 2
If that doesn’t work then you can try to stop the Automatic Update service and clear out the previously downloaded files and cache.

Open the Services console by clicking on Start, Run and typing in services.msc and clicking Ok. Stop the Automatic Update service by right clicking on it and choosing Stop.
Open My Computer or Windows Explorer and make sure that hidden files and folders are shown.

Navigate to WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete all the files within this folder. Then navigate to WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\EventCache and delete all the files in there as well.

In the Services console, start the Automatic Update service by right clicking on it and choosing Start. You may also want to check its properties and make sure it is set to Automatic for startup type.

Download the latest version of the Windows Update Agent and save it to your desktop.

Close your web browser and any other open programs and double click the WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe file to run it.

If you get a message saying that the Update Agent is already installed, then click on Start, Run and then click the Browse button and navigate to where WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe was saved on your desktop and click on it one time. Click on the Open button and in the Open line, click once on WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe file so its highlighted. Click after the last quotation mark in the line and enter /wuforce after the last quotation mark so it looks something like "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" /wuforce. Click Ok to install the Windows Update Agent
Close all open programs and install the update.
Restart your computer and try downloading and installing Windows updates again. If your computer already has some updates that were downloaded during the time you were performing the above steps, cancel them and download them again from scratch.

Error code 2352

To run the Microsoft Windows Installer if Norton AntiVirus was installed from the CD
  1. Insert the Norton AntiVirus CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If the installation program appears, then click Browse the CD
    • If the installation program does not appear, then double-click the My Computer icon on the Windows desktop, and then double-click the CD-ROM drive icon.
  3. Double-click the MSI folder.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click the WIN9x folder.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click the WINNT folder.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click the Instmsi.exe file.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click Instmsiw.exe if you have Windows 2000/XP.
  6. In the next dialog box, click Yes.
  7. After the rollback has finished, then reinstall Norton AntiVirus.
    Follow the instruction in Reinstalling your Symantec program after a failed installation or after you see error messages to start the computer without any programs running on startup and then reinstall your Norton program.

If these steps do not fix the problem, then go on to the next section.

To run the Microsoft Windows Installer if Norton AntiVirus was installed from a downloaded version
  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Find (or Search) > Files or Folders.
  2. Ensure that "Look in" is set to the drive where you downloaded Norton AntiVirus, and that "Include subfolders" is checked.
  3. In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, type the following:

      instmsi.exe
    • In Windows 2000/XP, type the following:

      instmsiw.exe
  4. Click Find Now or Search Now.
    You might see many files with this name. Look for the file with this name that is located in either the Symantec_Norton_AntiVirus_2003 or the your Windows temporary file location depending on your version of Norton AntiVirus.
  5. In the Search Results window, do one of the following, depending on your version of Windows:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click Instmsi.exe.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click Instmsiw.exe.
  6. In the next dialog box, click Yes.
    This will undo the changes that were made to your system during the first failed installation.
  7. After the process finishes, then reinstall Norton AntiVirus.
    Follow the instruction in Reinstalling your Symantec program after a failed installation or after you see error messages to start the computer without any programs running on startup and then reinstall your Norton program.
