Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

"unable to locate component" pop up

When I start my laptop I get "unable to locate component" for every program that tries to start. From Windows to itunes to wallpaper toy and everything in between. If I press OK or x it the programs continue to open but frequently they continue to pop up "unable to locate component". DO you have any advice? Is this a virus or a trojan? Please help!!!

On my windows 7 gateway laptop I am receiving the message "the ordinal 572 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll. I ran a cmd scan and did not find anything. Any suggestions?


How To Fix Iertutil.dll Errors

Important: Do not download iertutil.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of iertutil.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the iertutil.dll error.
  1. Restore iertutil.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" iertutil.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it. If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted iertutil.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover iertutil.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important: Recovering a deleted copy of iertutil.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.

How do i stop my windows intaller trying to install symantec antivirus msi file


Step 1:
Stop Windows Installer From Popping Up b> The older a computer gets, the more junk it accumulates. A great number of computers out there don't start up without a thousand things popping up demanding your attention. Windows Installer is one of the more notorious pop-up offenders for Microsoft users. Stopping these pop-ups can prove challenging, however, there is a way.

On your computer's desktop, click on the "Start" tab, typically located on the bottom left of the screen (in Vista it may be the Windows symbol rather than the word "Start"). Now locate and click the program titled "Run." Vista users can locate this program by typing "run" in the search box at the bottom of the "Start" menu. Once "Run" is open, type "MSCONFIG" into the empty box and click "OK." This will open the System Configuration Utility. With the System Configuration Utility open, select the tab labeled "Services." Scroll down the list of services (it may be beneficial to click the "service" column to sort the services alphabetically) until you find the "Windows Installer" program. Now click the check box beside the Windows Installer name and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the System Configuration. Congratulations, you have stopped "Windows Installer" from popping up!

Rtl100.bpl what is it.


it sounds like a program was removed and the operating system is trying to run the program when the OS starts up. Are you having any problems with your programs or virus scanner? A virus can disable/remove files or programs. Did you un-install any programs? Did your virus scanner find any malware or virus and remove them? Try all your programs and see if any have trouble starting. Check the windows start-up folder and see what icons are in that folder.

Uninstall your older version or any version of I tunes. Do a search for itunes and if you find more, remove them, Try it with the uninstall program utility first. If you have problems uninstalling it, maybe it tells you that you don't have permission( this has happened to me with other programs), then look for a program on the internet called "revo uninstaller". This is a great program for pesky programs that don't or can't be deleted. This "will" take em out. then, just re-install the program.

LSASS "Unable to Load Component" Error


I think because of the power failure, some parts in your hard drive are broken, bad sector may be.
So, when reinstalling, I suggest you to do full format, not a quick format. That way, the installation will recognize the place where bad sector is located, and will not put anything at that place.
Can not load component, usually because windows can not read from the disk.
