Hi there folks,
I hope you can help me with some problems I've been having lately.
When I turned my computer on the other day Windows flashed an error screen which I cannot remember what it said. As important as the error might have been, I still logged on but the computer started crashing and Windows Media Player wouldn't open. I decided to format.
When Windows was installing it flashed an error screen about a missing .dll. I tried formatting a couple other times but I still got the missing .dll error and every time it complained about a different .dll. Even though it complained about the missing files, it still managed to install Windows and I tried installing all my programs as usual (including Norton, which went fine) until the computer started crashing and flashing error screens. So, thinking there was something wrong with my copy of Windows, I got a new copy from a friend. His copy already had Service Pack 2, which mine hadn't, in case that's relevant.
Installation occurred with no problems using his cd and again I started installing all my programs as usual. Everything went alright with the exception of Norton. First it gave me an error screen when I was unzipping it so I got another copy of Norton from a friend and again it gave me an error screen when unzipping. It works fine on his computer but it just won't unzip on mine.
What can I do? Is the problem Norton or Winrar? Any help will be appreciated.
