    I reciently bought a new computer from a small computer store and we installed a few games and programs on it. shortly after I began recieving 'system 32 errors'. The message occurs at any time in varoius programs and sometimes when I am on the internet. It occasionally liocks up the system, other times it just works itself out. The store where I got it was little help. THey just want me to bring it back and pay to have it fixed. I'd only use that as a final effort. I have repaired pc's in the past but this one has me stumped. All I want to know is what does the system 32 error relate to and what could be done to fix it?

    Thw message that I get simply says "system32 error" and nothing else... it has me kinda stumped because it doesn't say illeagel opperation od any thing like that. As far as the mocrosoft updates I haven't has the time to download them. It'll probably take forever unless you have some sudestions. Thanks

    I get much the same and have for the past few months. Yes, I do take critical updates all the time and am sure it's tied tto them. I get the message when I go to open up attachments sent to me by friends, In one case, it was a audio file that I sent him last year. Now I can't open it. The message that comes up reads


    c:\windows\temporary internet files\content. IE5\UV2EM55M\christmas.(christmas is part of the name of the file) PPS is not a valid win32 application.

    If the errors are coming from window's
    temporary internet files, you could try
    to delete them. Make sure your in the right folder
    as you can wipe out windows with this.
    Reboot computer into dos and type:
    cd c:\windows\intern~1
    press enter. Then type:
    deltree *.*
    press enter. It should confirm you want to
    delete.
    Windows will recreate these files next time
    you log go on the internet.
