    yesterday i got an error with internet explorer and i uninstalled it and tried installing it but the install couldnt download the files it needed. so i decided to use my computers system restore disk. while i was reinstalling xp i get an error message that says this "unregmp2.exe - entry point not found, the entry point procudure GETIUMS could not locate the dynamic link lybrary MSDART.dll" and after that the install hangs. i retried the install but it didnt work and i cant do a clean install of xp cause i only have a system restore disk and not the full version on xp... what im wondering is if there is a way to use the system restore console to either install the missing .dll manualy or fix my comp from there???

    If it is a "Restore" CD from a computer manufactuer, then it should not give you any error msgs when running through it. I would call the OEM and talk to them.

    When you say your fathers side, do you mean when he logs on with his account?

    Are you a local administrator on the pc? If not you wont be able to add printers (I think) and install things.

    Good Luck

    Hi
    I was browsing through the topics so I hope you don't mind me sticking my nose in. ;)
    The same error happened to me. I also have a rescue disc and just couldn't fix anything.
    With me it took my network connections options away. It said I could only connect to the internet using Broadband (which I don't use).

    I took my PC back to the shop where I purchased. They reformatted and reapplied Windows.
    It now works like a dream.
    Cost £25, but it was money worth spending. ;)
    Good Luck!

    i'd like to update this post with all the info i can...

    hope this clears up all

    in response to pileyrei:

    yes im talking about my fathers account, and i have admin on this computer.

    and in response to avas eyes:

    i've thought about getting a copy of windows xp and reformatting.


    UPDATE: on a whole the problems that still remain are these,

    1) internet explorer does not work on my account but on my fathers account it does, right now im using opera.(this was actually the original problem :p)

    2) on start up i get a new hardware dected message for a printer... i got the drivers for my printer and installed them and i still get this message on start up, this started happening when i reinstalled xp. and the message appears on both accounts.

    anyone got any idea on how to fix these problems aside from reformating and installing xp fresh???(i want avoid that if i can)
