Hello,

I just installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 and, after It tells me it hasn't installed correctly and then i rebooted and this pop-ed up!

Error 1.

The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\WINMM.dll is not a valid windows image.
Check against installation diskette.

Then a couple of seconds later,

Error 2.

Error Loading P17.dll
Directory Corrupt or unreadable

Any way to fix this.

For every program I start it keeps on saying

The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\WINMM.dll is not a valid windows image.
Check against installation diskette.


Any solution thanks!

I think I'd run Memtest...from my limited personal experience with those types of errors.

Can you uninstall SP3?

Did you check the hard drive before you attempted the install?

What was the exact message you received at the end of the attempt to install SP3?

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
