Your computer will not work properly if a Windows Dynamic-Link Library (.dll) file is damaged or missing. When this happens, you will receive an error message similar to this: "[program name] Illegal system DLL relocation."
The .dll file type contains instructions, or code, to run scripts that open dialog boxes.
These important graphical elements are necessary for computer user interaction in most software programs.
There is a simple way to keep all of your .dll files healthy, so you rarely lose valuable time restoring lost or broken links.
Connect your computer to the Internet.

Click "Express" to find out if your computer requires new updates.
Press "Install Updates" if any are available.
Otherwise, close the Microsoft Update window.
Update your anti-virus program and then immediately scan all of the files on your computer.
Open the software program that gave the .dll notice to see if error messages still occur.
If so, continue to the next step.
Reinstall the affected software program to replace the damaged or missing .DLL file.
If the issue is still not resolved, contact Microsoft Support.

I have two questions for Milton if possible:both on computer glitches, two different computers


For the Optiplex:
Did you buy the exact same motherboard for the Optiplex? When you put the CPU in the motherboard, did you apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heatsink? If not, that is like metal touching metal and it will short out or get hot and shut off. I don't think it's your drive. When the Thermal Paste around the CPU and HeatSink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool it will run hot and shut off.

LOL, I hate Vista too, and Windows 7 is just a tab bit better, so now they will be forcing Windows 8 on the general public in the coming months. Very few companies, government entities, school systems, etc. bought into Vista or Windows 7 and nobody but consumers buying computers at retail store will buy into Windows 8 unless it is as good as Windows XP.

For the Acer Desktop if you are using Outlook as your email client then Internet Explorer might be having an issue. One common fix was to install Mozilla Firefox, Opera & Google Chrome internet browsers. When you install Mozilla Firefox set it as the default browser, you can always go back and start Internet Explorer and set it back as your default browser. Then try opening your emails and clicking the links and try your usb flash drive.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

http://www.opera.com/download/

https://www.google.com/chrome


For the Acer, try turning off User Account Control if installing the other browsers above did not solve the issue.

Below is a link that will show you how to do it.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    disable_uac_3.gif
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    disable_uac_4.gif
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    disable_uac_5.gif
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    disable_uac_6.gif
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    disable_uac_7.gif
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

I can not install OfficeSuite. I have Windows Vista home Premium. I had downloaded updates all afternoon and it still shows error 1719 Window installer not correctly installed. Help!


Download:Windows Vista Service Pack 1

I tried personally in WIN-XP worked same applies to Vista.

Error Message:
Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed. Translation:
This message might appear when you’re trying to add or remove a program that installs via a Windows Installer MSI (Microsoft Software Installation) package file. The Windows Installer Service is the standard method for installing and uninstalling software on Windows XP. It keeps track of all of the components that need to be installed for a particular program to run and ensures that any files that are shared by programs are not removed when one of those programs is uninstalled. The Error 1719 is an indication that some Windows Installer Service files are missing or have become damaged. Solution:
The first thing to try is re-registering Windows Installer in the Windows registry. Make sure that no other programs are running and then click Start, Run, type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK. Next, click Start, Run, type misexec /regserver in the Open field, and click OK. Restart your computer and try installing or uninstalling again.

If you’re still getting the error message, the next step is to try reinstalling the Windows Installer files. In order to do this, you’ll first need to rename the existing files.

First, click Start, Run, and type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK.

In My Computer, click Search and locate the following three files: msi.dll, msiexec.exe, and msihnd.dll. They are hidden files so you’ll need to select Search Hidden Files And Folders under More Advanced Options. When you’ve found the files, rename them, by removing the .dll and .exe extensions and replacing them with an .old extension(for example msi.dll becomes msi.old).

Once you’ve renamed the files, WinXP will automatically replace them with a new copy from the dllcache (a hidden folder where copies of important system files are kept in case you mistakenly delete or rename critical system files). Restart your computer and try to install or uninstall the program again.

Finally, if neither of the above processes corrects the problem, boot into Safe Mode, and go through the above steps again, first re-registering and then reinstalling.

or

Go through the following links:

Hope this will be helpfull

Please rate me...

Thanks & Regards.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Theme of xp and vista operating system


To download themes for XP and vista, you'll need a few things.

Firefox Web Browser - http://getfirefox.com/
Greasemonkey Firefox Addon - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748
ThemeXP.org Link Rewriter - http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/5150
UXTheme.dll Patcher - http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707
WinRAR - http://rarsoft.com/

Install them in that order. Once they're installed (you probably want to restart), visit http://themexp.org and download a visual style (theme). Extract it to c:\windows\resources\themes and it should show up when you right click on the desktop and go to properties.

StyleXP helps this process a bit (you won't need to install WinRAR or the UXTheme patcher). It does, however, cost money.
