    This message is reported persistently by Norton WinDoctor.

    Missing File: "C:\WINDOWS\System32\MAPISRVR.EXE"
    "C:\WINDOWS\System32\MAPISRVR.EXE" cannot access a necessary file, "gapi32.dll."

    The inaccessible dll is one of the very few faults that's not automatically repairable by Windoctor. Although it doesn't seem to be causing any obvious trouble, I was curious and went looking. Found it at
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT\GAPI32.DLL

    Anyone know what it is and what if anything I should do about it?

    I don't know but I get exactly the same result with WinDoctor.

    Norton just is not looking in the right place for it. Do a search on your computer for GAPI32.DLL. If you did an upgrade you should have 2. One is located C:\Program Files\Common Files\SYSTEM\Mapi\1033\95old
    The new one is here C:\Program Files\Common Files\SYSTEM\Mapi\1033\NT
    Copy the one from the NT folder and put it in C:\windows\system32
    That will keep Norton happy and you should be good to go.

    Thanks Conard. Yesterday I discovered that file and done exactly what you suggested. WinDoctor now finds no errror.
