Hi,SRC errors seem to be mostly with bad disk ,but of cource can also be something else .Is the photo onyour harddrive or a floppy ,or rewritable disk ,
Error message Googled

The picture is on my hard drive. It is in a folder of copied pictures that I made to use for my wife's screensaver. When her screensaver came up, the hard drive made a "peculiar" sound that got my attention. I'm trying to delete the entire folder of pictures but anytime I access the folder/pictures the hard drive starts making the noise and the machine stops responding.

Appreciate the help. I was able to fix the files with Norton Disk Doctor.

I am having a similar problem with cabinet.dll I am getting errors telling me I have a bad or missing cabinet.dll. The file is there. In fact I have four copies on my machine, Two have the same date and are the same size. I tried to copy one of the others to windows/system32 but I get the CRC error message each time. I cannot remove or rename the file in system32. I have downloaded a new copy of the file and I get the same error message when I try to copy or move it into system 32.

I have tried safe mode.. made sure I have administrators access etc. Uses cmd mode. Nothing works. Any new suggestions.
[BTW: this is a new drive, XP has been newly installed and updated within the past 6 weeks, and I don't want to go back to geeksquad.]

Hmmm. After posting the last message, I tried chkdsk /f from the run line. After it rebooted, it discovered a numbe of unreadable sectors and corrected them. It reduced cabinet.dll to 2k but the file still couldn't be removed. I then remembered an old tool I have called "unlocker." http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
I installed it and ran it on the dll, which then allowed me to remove it. I then copied one of the other copies of cabinet.dll into system32 and all of the problems I had been having disappeared.

Alls well that ends well. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks,

Len
