I have folders with tons of photos and graphics files in them. When I attempt to open some of these folders windows explorer resets or something -- if I try to pull up a file while in any of my graphics software it kicks me out of the software too. The error message says something about not able to acces memory (and then lists a long number). In examining the lengthy error message it mentions a problem with ntdll.dll (there are several of these files on my computer.
I was told to:
Start, Run, regsvr32 ntdll.dll
When I do this I get an error message that says "ntdll.dll is loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found -- This file cannot be registered"
I was then told to try:
Start, Run, regsvr32 samlib.dll (because ntdll.dll is dependant upon this dll)
When I do this I get the same error message. I have also tried using Registry Mechanic, but it found nothing.
It has also been suggested that I have a bad hard drive (I don't want this to be the cause obviously)
Any other suggestions?
I am running Windows XP on my Toshiba Satellite laptop with a Pentium M chip and I have installed Service Pack 2.
Please help. I need to get to these files to get my work done.
