Hi orangejuicegirl, that's a problem that would upset anyone, but welcome to the board and Happy Thanksgiving, nonetheless.

What version of Windows do you have? If you have Win98 or 98SE, you can replace that file from your Windows CD or from the cab files on your hard drive using the System File Checker. If you have WinME, you can use msconfig > extract one file.

=================
Using SFC to extract files

1. Go to Start>Run and enter SFC and click OK
2. Check "Extract one File"
3. Enter the file name and click on "Start"
4. In the "Restore from" field enter:: D:\WIN98 [if 'D' is not the letter of your CD-Rom drive, modify appropriately]
5. Click OK

{if you do not have a Windows system CD, try subsitituting c:\windows\options\cabs in the"restore from field"}

=======================

If you need to, you can download the file for the version of Windows that you have from the site below and use SFC to copy it to c:\windows\system

Try downloading the file from the link I posted. Then run sfc and in the "restore from" location enter or browse to the directory where you downloaded the file.
