DLL problems.

I have recently got a second hand pc.

I installed a copy of Windows xp on it and am having the following problem.

When i try to run a setup fie from a cd it says

" The proceure entry point GDipCreateStringFormat could not be located in the dynamic link library gdiplus.dll."

It seems to only be a problem with installation files from cd.

I have tried installing 2 other copy's of windows using different hard drives and still have the same problem. So it seems as tho it is a problem with the pc. I have also tried using different CD drives.

Any ideas.

Also the pc is a packard bell with a AMD sempron(tm) processor 300+.

thanks for the link,

i tried those programs but the problem is still there.

any ther ideas?

I dont think it is a problem with the windows install because its the same on different windows copys on different hard drives. The windows works fine when i put HD in my other pc and run it on that.

Could it be a prblem with the Mother board or something?
