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)

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???
