    Howdy,

    Right click on the Zip and choose Extract All
    Click Next
    In the File will be extracted to this Directory
    Click Browse button
    Click My Computer
    Then Local Disk C:/
    Look for 1386 folder
    click on it and you should see System32 folder
    Click on it and then click Next

    if you don't see the 1386 folder you might have to Show hidden files first and try again.

    How to Show Hidden Files
    • Click Start.
      Open My Computer.
      Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
      Select the View Tab.
      Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
      Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) and uncheck Hide Extensions for known file option.
      Click Yes to confirm.
      Click OK.

    Thank you for your help and walk through.

    However, I am still getting the error "applicaton or DLL C:\windows\system32\DCIMAN32.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check against installation diskette"

    I started receiving this when I upgraded to IE7.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You wouldn't want to walk me through that would you?

    Go to Control Panel then Add/Remove click on at the to Show Updates look down the list for IE7 and remove it.....restart your PC and it should revert back to IE6

    Thank you. I'll try that. Should I reinstall IE7 then? If so, how would I do that.
