Hi Computer Whizzes.....I'm hoping that you can help me. I have for the last 2 weeks been getting this error message: res://C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL/dnserror.htm. I have tried to replace the file which I was originally told was missing, but when I try to rename the old SHDOCLC.DLL file or delete it, it tells me that the file is in use by windows. I have tried this in safe mode and a start up, I get the same message. I tried a system restore, but also no go. I tried the http://www.bu.edu/pcsc/internetaccess/winsock2fix.html fix but that has not worked either. Please Im desperate, I wanna throw the machine out the window. It's so frustrating. I hope you can help me thanks. If its any help it happened after I uninstalled some games I downloaded but which one is the culprit.....I don't know. Thanks :)

Hi and welcome.

have you tried running system file checker (ME doesn't have it),

RUN/ type sfc and replace files as required from os disc.

Good, so you can run sfc (but ALL changed files will show, so choose carefully). It's the 1st thing to try when troubleshooting system file errors.

You may want to Un-install any old "Adaware" program first.

Go here and read and follow the instructions. Click to download the LSPfix.exe file to your computer or a floppy then take it to the computer with the problem. Click on that file (LSPfix.exe) and open the program. Put a check mark in "I know what I'm doing" box. Then click "Finish". Re-boot your computer and see if it is fixed. http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm

If not, do this:
If pages in Internet Explorer are coming up blank then Go to START, RUN and Type in "regsvr32 urlmon.dll" without the quotes and click OK. Do the same for all these:
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll

Then re-boot the computer and see if it is fixed.

Let us know if that works!

Hi SusiQusi,
Try this:
res://C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL/dnserror.htm

This occurs when the WINSOCK2 Registry Key and TCP/IP stack are not updated after an upgrade of your AOL software -or- if AOL parental control restrictions are set for the current account. This sometimes corrects itself so don't be too hasty.

BE VERY CAREFUL: Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly may cause problems that would require you to reinstall Windows!

If you need additional information about Registry editing, select START > Run, type REGEDIT in the RUN dialog window and, using the HELP menu, read the following three articles:

Changing Keys and Values
Add and Delete Information in the Registry
Edit Registry Data

Also note that you should back up the Registry before you edit it. If you are running Windows NT or Windows 2000, you should also update your Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

1. Verify that the AOL Parental Controls are disabled.

2. Remove all network components.
- Click Start and then Settings.
- Select Control Panel and then double-click the Network icon.
- Write down all the settings in Network properties for your LAN and
Dial-up Networking (DUN) connections.
- Select each network component and then click Remove.
(adapters, clients, etc.)
- DO NOT restart the computer if prompted to do so.

3. Uninstall Dial-up Networking:
- Click START and the Settings.
- Select Control Panel and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.
- On the Windows Setup tab, clear the check box next to the
Communications entry.
- DO NOT restart the computer if prompted to do so.

4. Use Registry Editor to locate and remove the following Registry Key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\winsock2

5. Restart the computer:

6. Double-click the AOL icon and let the program rebuild the necessary
components.

7. Close AOL and then restart the computer.
