  1. Hi,

    I am having a problem with Win XP Pro SP2, when I starting the computer I get this error right after the Windows logo and loading screen:

    STOP: C0000269 {illegal System DLL Relocation}
    The system DLL kernel32.dll was relocated in memory. The Application will not run properly.
    The relocation occurred because the DLL F:\WINDOWS\system32\ntdll.dll occupied an address range reserved for windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL shou %s %s

    I tried to start in SafeMode but the same thing happens.
    If it did start in SafeMode I would have System Restored.

    Please help.

    In Advance Thanks.

    System restore from Safe Mode command prompt

    (note you must have administrator rights)


    Actually if you do re-install, make sure you do SP3 instead of any individual updates

    I tried to do safe mode with command prompt but the same thing happen.

    I was hoping to get this done with in a few hours cause i cant play CSS on VISTA ulti-'MAT'.

    and if i do reformat, i wont install sp3.
    i heard some bad things about it and i don't feel like experimenting

    I do agree about that, I want to make this clear: I am NOT Discussing The stuff I download(whether free or not) or am trying to obtain (Illegally or Legally).

    Note: this is just a re-assurance post.

    Good to know, Thank's.

    If this is any help, Before this happend I installed Rhapsody on my computer, on the same harddrive and didnt restart it untell later the next day.


    I have discovered KB929399 and KB926239.txt files on my effected harddrive, they say that an update was made on the 19th of this month.
    I had no idea those updates were installed, as far I know I had Windows Update turned off.
    So now I have no idea as to what to do next, i really dont know how to replace a few .dll files, And i have been working on computers all my life.

    But thats what makes us better at repairing them, learning from more experienced users.
    I consider myself to be above the "Beginner" league.

    Thanks Again,

    I am going to reformat in a few hours, I need to do it anyways.

    Thank you Kimsland for your expertly help, I can only hope to be as knowledgeable as you one day.
