Hi folks,
A while back you helped me with spyware, so now I am hoping you can help again. I am attempting to load some new software but when i do it comes up file error "cannot find shell.dll" I did a search and it is in there. I also have not seen this type of extraction utility before called "webapp- win32cabinet extractor."

Thanks in advance,

Eddie M

The file may have become corrupted; viruses or other "nasties" can do this.

Tell us which version of Windows you're running and we'll tell you how to replace shell.dll with a fresh copy from your installation CD.
