    I woke up one morning recently to the BSOD:
    xxx stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x82376820, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000)

    not knowing what to do i reinstalled Windows XP SP2 from the original CD i have for this computer (i never installed SP3 since i use a dialup ISP)
    i didnt wipe out the HD so its not a clean install

    My 120GB external hard drive which i was relying on to harbor my much needed word files was empty too or perhaps when i tried to view the files i may have deleted or wiped them clean them by reinstalling it on newly reinstalled Windows XP system i set up.

    i lost most of my needed microsoft word files, although ive recovered some using a free version of Pandora but not nearly all, perhaps you have some suggestions here?
    i tried Recuva but only file names and not the contents come back with that

    im downloading and installing some of the apps and programs i had on this computer
    however when i try to reinstall bitpim version 1.06 or version 1.07 i keep getting the same error msg:
    "this aplication has failed to start because MSVCP71.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem" (It didnt!) "See the logfile C:program Files\BitPim\bitpimw.exe.lng.."

    Im using
    Windows XP Home SP2 version 2002 dialup with Netzero

    Im not much more than a newbie when it comes to computers so please take the time to explain what i need to do to
    1) recover my lost word files (if thats possible for free) and
    2)reinstall bitpim 1.06 or 1.07 versions, i had no problem installing it previously on this computer to download and view my pics with the cable i bought, so i neeed to get rid of the MSVCP71.dll error msg to do so

    See this...http://forums.techguy.org/games/768432-solved-civilization-4-getting-msvcp71.html. The following steps are taken from that successful resolution to this same problem:

    Put the MSVCP71.dll in the c:\windows\System32\ folder. Go to the run box and type:

    regsvr32 c:\windows\System32\msvcp71.dll

    If that doesn't work try without the quotes:

    regsvr32 "c:\windows\System32\msvcp71.dll"

    If that doesn't work try downloading and installing msvcr71.dll. This also goes in the c:\windows\system32\ folder. Once you have installed it, go to the run box and type the following:

    regvsr c:\windows\system32\msvcr71.dll

    If you still have no success, type:

    regsvr32 "c:\windows\System32\msvcp71.dll"

    Thanks, it has been suggested that my word files are hidden in a folder in Windows Explorer since I didnt do a clean install of Windows XP. If so how would I go about uncovering these files without the need for data recovery programs?

    (You cannot legally download any MS dll's from anywhere except MS, and they don't have many available at all. NEVER download dll's from other sources - they come in different versions and names, being arbitrary, can be the same for vastly different files. Also, dll's are not "installable". They need to be placed manually where they belong. Most dll's cannot be registered with regsvr32, either.)

    Take ownership of any folders from earlier accounts that you can't open.

    How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP (Or Vista, 7)

    If you have Home Edition of XP, use this to make the Security tab appear without Safe Mode: XP Security Tab Home Edition. You will not need Safe Mode as in the MS directions.

    Or use this:

    "Take Ownership" Context Menu

    The "missing" dll is a missing runtime for Visual C++ (Most programs that need it will install it when they are installed if it is not present, but not all.).

    Download and install it from here:
