When we try to install printer drivers and utilities for our new printer we get file error cannot find SHELL.DLL then cannot find file E:\Drivers\English\Setup.exe(or one of its components). We use windows xp and have been hijacked in the past but system seems ok now. Would appreciate any help.

Hi novite and welcome to the site!

You must have gotten hit with a particular hijacker in the past. What version of windows xp do you have?

Copy the shell.dll file from c:\windows\system32\dllcache to c:\windows\system and to c:\windows\system32
