    K, I Copied this off another site but this is the problem....


    When excuting any icons on desktop (i.e. Internet Explorer, My Computer, My Documents and etc), I get an error that states, " Failed to load resource DLL" click on "Ok". Does not provide what DLL is affected. The error msg is what it is.

    Thanks.

    This could be caused from spyware type software trying to load on startup. You can use MSCONFIG from the RUN command and under Startup Tab disable everything and see if the error still happens. If not, then you can enable each item one at a time until the error pops up. Or...you might try System Restore and go back to a point where this problem didn't happen. Have you loaded any software of late? Made any changes to your system?

    You can bet it left behind something. Do a Google search for Spybot. It's free and download it. Update it, run it and remove what it finds. See if that cures your problem.

    What is in the Right click context menu besides the usual stuff. The error is usually associated with some program that has added itself there and requires a "resource" dll of some kind.

    And don't forget you have XP System Restore to the rescue if necessary.
