Startup program will not show the task bar, icons, clock or "Start" button. Microsoft CD will not work, nothing happens. "Normaliz.dll" was removed by accident.
How do I get it back when there is no Start Menu of any kind or sort, and using CD does not work?

CD trying to be used did not come with computer, but is exact duplicate of XP OS being used.

You could boot into safe mode and try a system restore to a point before the issue surfaced from the admin account.

If that doesn't work:

I found these in the Microsoft forum:
One of them might work for you.

"hi i had the same problem go to windows task manager by pressing cltr then alt and then delete press new task and coy and paste this


and press k then restore ur comp and then it will totally fine"


I Read some of the info from the Microsoft Certified partner provided by me to this link which is free attached. However, you must have another computer to get this file or re-install IE7. I chose to copy this file into the directory after downloading.

To completely fix the computer without Normaliz.dll file: First, start your computer without the file, if it keeps saying the same error message, just keep clicking the error message till the window comes up that you want. Then, when you have a screen without any menus or links, "click control alternate delete" to bring up a "task window". Click on Applications Window, In the right hand corner click on New Task, Click Browse to find where you Unzipped the Files to any USB device that you downloaded, then copy the file to the windows\system32 directory.


If its broke, fix it!"

The person who had the problem stated that the 2nd solution worked for him/her.
