    I put in a old program ... it did not work so i removed it so i thought.

    Now i have some of my normal programs that wont load up , tried reinstalling and all that even tried using repair in the xp setup disc.

    the message is
    Procedure entry point thunkconnect32 cannot be connected to
    link library kernel32.dll

    I cant even copy a kernell32.dll from one computer to another.

    that doesnt sound very good. as far as i know, kernal32.dll is an important system file, kind of like the backbone of windows.

    The best way is to back up whatever you need. Format, and do a clean WinXp install.

    Have you tried doing a repair install? or was it the first repair option in the XP setup process?

    repair install. took forever .

    also xp program dvdupgrade has the same problem.

    IF I could copy that file into system that would do the trick.. how can i unlock the system to alow a copy of the file ?

    You could probably do it from the repair console.

    looks like something to do with zip drive software from a quick google
