Whenever I open the calculator, an error message pops-up saying:

The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll occupied an address range reserved for Windows system Dlls. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

I doubt I have a virus or spyware. Probably because I've reshacked lots of system32 dlls. (I had read about this problem somewhere else but forgot. Said to shrink it or something like that.) Anyway, my shell32.dll is approx. 30MB (!). Any help?

Interesting issue you have. Have you tried to repair shell32.dll? Does any other program on your computer have this issue?

Hmm...doesn't look like anything else has the error message. By repairing shell32, do you mean to replace, or anything? (Cause I've just got software and blah blah blah that makes everything Vista-ish.)

Vista converters etc do more damage than good. They are a pain in the neck. If you want your Operating System to look like Vista, get Vista lol.

Ok... so any other solution besides replacing it?
(Maybe compressing in safe mode, but not sure if possible or says shell32 is in use...)

Also found that maybe AVG 8 scan doesn't work and Windows Defender fails to update, even after uninstallation and reinstall. When executing mpas-fe.exe (latest update for WD from MS Malware Research) says the same error message (without the calc.exe, of course).

Actually, I've already fixed the problem. Simply got a shell32 DLL from my Vista Inspirat folder, reshacked it to make it look better (took long) and got it at only 13MB. Phew! Maybe Grisoft and Microsoft should consider making a correct error message (cause it WAS actually related to shell32) and use a different development algorithm. Consumers can't just have security programs stuff when some file gets too large (Kaspersky doesn't seem to mind, for example). Can they?
