i was just browsing the net as per usual, when i got one of those illegal error messages. it shut down all my windows and so i re-booted the lappie. when it re-booted, it said something about updating my profile. now i cant access the internet from it AT ALL! my connection shortcut is apparently missing, it just says: access to the specified device, path or file is denied. i go to control panel / internet options / connections... all the information is gone. i went to activate the connection wizard and got this message: Error Starting Program The MSVCRT.DLL file is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL:RtGetNtVersionNumbers someone please HELP!!! NOW it;s saying: RUNDLL Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~2.DLL A device attached to the system is not functioning. ::EDIT:: ok so i ran system file checker and it's telling me that the following file is corrupted: File: setupx.dll Loc: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM however when i tell it to restore the file, it says: The file was not found. Verify you have selected the correct "restore from" location and try again. ARRRGGGHHH! what does this mean?
