    A search inicates one of 2 things - Try the DL again and if that doesn't work, you'll need to post a HiJack log.

    if you look in your system32 folder in the windows folder you should see shell.dll (not shell32.dll but just shell.dll)

    if you cant find it then your missing a file just search google for shell.dll missing file and you just download it and put it in your system32
