PROBLEM: when i try to click on my computer or control panel in the start menu i get an error.
When i try to open a file in another file i get an error. it always mentions something about shell32.dll

I am now using windows xp pro. i installed it to my c drive wich is un partitioned.
Yes i now under stand that was pretty dang dumb.
ok using xp pro i can use the file system and everything just fine.
but when i dual boot back to home still have the errors.
A program i need to install is not installing right on the xp
and the problem is it doesnt do what it is supposed to do. because of the stupid fact i installed the xp pro onto the same partition.

Is there a way to fix the home edition?

and if nothing else how can i format the hardrive.
it won't let me because something is using it.

Any help would be appriciated.


ps the stats and highjack this are taken when using xp pro.

I'm a little confused with your posting, perhaps it's the way I have read it, but how have you installed two operating systems on one partition ?

Or is it me and the hour of the day.........


Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?

Installing 2 O/Ses on the same partition can be done...I've done accidentally with Win 98...the result is two Windows folders, one for the initial install and a 2d called Windows .001 or something like that.

The key is deciding which app to eliminate. Elimination is easy, just boot into the other install and delete the Windows folder which you have not booted into.

Of course, the logical thing to do is to eliminate the second folder (since all previous apps are installed in the initial Windows folder).

But, if you want to be rid of both and just start anew, the simple thing to do is use XP CD, delete the partition...and start anew.

This all assumes that you really have a MS XP CD, OEM, upgrade, or retail.

I cannot tell anyone how to do this using a "recovery CD".

Yep, it's me and the hour of the day.

Looks as if the best plan would be a complete re-install with one of the systems, assuming the obvious of course.
