I was doing some installing and uninstalling. I ended up with a blue screen.
Some kind of error message flashed on there, but the computer quickly restarts and was unable to boot all the way into the administrator account.

Eventually, I booted into safe mode and used "the last known good configuration" to boot up.

The only thing not working was the networking adapter, so, I replaced it.

Since I am here, you can safely assume that it was successful.

Unfortunately, a few hours later I found that when I click certain video games I get 3 an error messages;

==> "The procedure entry point ??_V@YAXPAX@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll".

I click "ok/continue" to each and then I am able to play them as I did --only no error messages.

I did some online research and searched the forums as much as I could, but nothing helped resolve my issue.

Here's some other programs not working that I know of:

- Avira Antivir virus scanner is not updating
- Yahoo and ICQ Messangers ...cannot sign-in
- Internet Explorer (Firefox seems ok)

Any help would be appreciated.

It may be possible that your msvcrt.dll is older version. Go to C:\Windows\System32 and right-click on msvcrt.dll, select Properties and see the version. For SP3 it should be 7.0.2600.

The version matched [msvcrt.dll 7.0.2600].

As a last effort before sleepy time, I tried System Restore back farther and it went through the motions, but after rebooting it said it failed and no files were changed.

Strange thing is that it must have done something because every thing mentioned in my original post works 9no more error messages... everything works]!

I'll try everything tomorrow and make sure everything continues to work correctly and if all goes well, I'll then make the close case report....

1) Everything still seems to be working fine.

2) However, I can't get windows to handle my network connection. Right now I am using my network adapters utility [Netgear WG111v2 Network Connection Utility Software].

The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service must be corrupted. When I attempt to let windows handel the network adapter configuration my connection does not work and when I attempt to view the "Advanced" settings of my connection, an error appears that says Windows cannot display the properties of this connection. Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) might be corrupted.

Do I need to open a new thread since this is just an annoyance?
