When i turned on my sons computer it has a file missing. So i have tried to repair windows from my xp disk but it asking for a administrators password. Any clues to what it is !!
 
Unless you set one during install it is blank.
 
Have not set one just pressed return and it just goes to the next line and it says windows
 
then your good to go - would advise setting an admin pass though
 
but how do you go tried pressing return just says windows again on the next line
 
yes then it means you are at the right place

c:\windows <--- correct, enter the commands you need to replace/repaire the file/folder(s)
 
what is the right command and how do you type it in
 
How about we start from the beginning. What is the missing file?
 
Ok thanks here it is
Explorer.exe unable to locate component
Browseui.dll was not found
 
copy C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\browseui.dll C:\WINDOWS\system32\browseui.dll

copy that line - as long as the file in is the dll cache folder you should be fine - if not try

expand x:\I386\BROWSEUI.DL_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\browseui.dll - replacing x with the drive letter of your cd drive

edit: j79zlrbeat me to it :D

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
