This comes up when ever I try to fire up FireFox.
After many trys FF will eventually come to screen.
Pondering where this problem may lay I Googled it no satisfactory answer came up.
So next I went to Windows help[My Computer - Help in the top bar] and up came Cannot find'Helpctre.exe

This seems to suggest this O/s is crippled in some way,

Would CFC / scannow- solve the problem?

It's probably the Vista dwmapi.dll file (that shouldn't be on an XP) click here
apparently it can get installed from another prog by mistake.
