  1. I have somehow ended up with this older file in windows than should be C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DDEML.DLL
    When i start two windows come up asking me to ESC so windows can repair this old file .....so i reboot but i still get the same.

    I think i have deleted somehow a newer version of this file and want to correct this.........not sure where to get this from and how to do this?

    Also have installed word 2000 and help files are missing ......i think this may be linked.

    much appreciated.

    Is it SYSTEM or SYSTEM32? What OS are you using? 2k? If it's 2k than I can send you my file, and you can replace it then reboot.

    Your answer has been found, I believe:
