    I do not know what happened but I lost System Restore from the "System Properties" menu. When I right click My Computer and select Properties I get a;

    "RunDLL32.exe - Unable to locate Component" "This application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

    I have searched for this framedyn.dll dll file and it is there in the directory where it is supposed to be. Is there anyway to reinstall System Restore?? Any help would be appreciated, thanks. Iwould love to use system restore to fix the problem but obviously I cannot. ;)

    Just curious - If you go Start, All Programs, Accessories, and System Tools - is System Restore the last item in the drop down list?

    If it is there - I assume (hate that word) you get some kind of error and it does not load when you click on it??

    Thanks for replying. The answer is yes, it is the last item in the drop down list and your assumption is correct, it gives me the same error and the program will not start. Any suggestions?

    damnyank you the Man!!!! Thanks for the direction, its all cleared up now and funtional.

    Can you tell me how you found out the info on Micro's Web site. This wany i can find out this info on my own next time instead of relying on other people. This would be an asset to me. Again thank you very much. I was debating on wiping clean and re-installing. Wow you saved me a lot of time and agravation.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you to mupp too for your input.

    sure
    go to Microsoft's site, and at the top highlight support. Click knoweledge base.
    On the left hand side there is a search bar...when u receive an error type the name of the file that had an error or any keywords that were in the error...you're sure to get a result for what you typed in 99% of the time...i hope i helped you

    mupp has the right idea about finding things on microsoft's site - however I usually start with a broader search area.

    I did a Goggle search for the error and actually looked at about three different sites prior to deciding to sent you the Microsft Knowledge Base one. I like to put some thought into these things and see if I also understand them - and since I am a bloomin idiot - I figure if I understand it - then it would be a piece of cake for anyone else to understand!

    Glad you got it working!

    :D :D :D
