Hi everyone , this is my first topic.

I am using a fairly old machine, its my sons old one its a Pentium 3 Windows XP SP2, 256 mb .- yes I know its old but I cant afford anything else at the moment, I mainly use it for word processing (I,m writing my life journal)
Im starting to have quite a few problems, it wont download some updates, I cant get IE 7 to install, I'm using Acco Browser which seems ok for what I need, MS Word sends out a couple of error messages before it finally condescends to work,sf scannow wont work, it keeps telling me that I have the wrong disk in the drive. Ive tried re installing windows repair a few times but it dosn't repair the faults - yes I know the answer is reformat and re install windows properly, but I just dont want to go through the hassle. I'm learning to live with these faults but the recent one is driving me mad, whenever I right click I get this error message - UNABLE TO LOAD MODULE,D:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\PK ARCHIVE 70b.dll and its keeping me waiting for ages before the menu comes up, if I can solve this one I'll be happy.
Other than that everything is fine - I would really appreciate some help.

Hello,

It sounds like a part of the context menu has become damaged or corrupted. Have a look in the event viewer for any warnings or errors http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ is a good overview of how to use the event viewer.

Has this problem always been there or is it a recent problem?
Regards,

Alan.

Sorry for the delay, I only use the comp. at night(too busy during the day)

Ive had a look at the event log, but this problem has been with me for a couple of months and I been living with it,
I cant really say when it started, I just thought someone on the forum might have had the same problem sometime,
and have a quick registry fix.

I know Ive had some trouble with windows installer and that this problem started just about the
same time. come to think of it my trouble with MS Word started about the same time - so I would say its the
installer that started it all off. Ive tried all sorts with installer and it now works in a fashion, I have been able to
download updates - but just this week its failed to install updates for Netframework.

Thanks for your help but it appears that I'll have to save what I need from the HD and reinstall the system.

Thanks again.

A google for that dll doesn't reveal any results - which is suspicious. I'd suggest checking with a few of these free, online scans to see if your protection has been compromised:

Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully:
