    when i turn on the computer it starts normally but when the opening page with my icons etc appears i also receive two messages.
    "a required file. dll, ws2_32.dll was not found"
    i can surf the web etc normally. i have searched for it four files are found in the folder c:\program files\aol
    but i cannot open them.

    the second message , for the "mfc40.dll file not found"
    i have taken advice and tried to extract it in windows mode and mdos, but all that happens is i receive a message
    cabinet win95_03.cab

    Standard troubleshooting steps because virus can cause these errors. See the below link in my signature for a on-line Panda scan. What operating system are you using?


    You need to be running a firewall like free Sygate from http://download.com - type, sygate, in the Search box, you must be on-line to register Sygate, that is if you're not using a firewalled Router on a Network or, have another third-party firewall like Sygate installed, to protect you and the Internet community from hackers, spammers and terrorist from using your computer for their own illicit needs while you're on-line?
