"Add and Remove Progarms" problem

  Dirty Dick 11:24 23 Sep 06

Whilst trying to open the "add or remove programs" icon in the Control Panel, a RUNDLL error message appears. The message reads "An exception occured while trying to run "C:WINDOWS\system32\shell32dll,Contol_RunDLL "C:WINDOWS\system32\appwiz.cpl",Add or Remove Programs"

Any ideas please

Try the system file checker



sfc /scannow

You need the XP CD in the drive
