Hello, I've been learning from BC for a while but never had so many problems since getting the laptop with Vista Home Premium. I now have a problem I cannot solve. (will post on that)

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5535 with AMD Turion X2, 320GB HDD and 4GB ram, Vista Home Premium pre-installed and no Windows disc :thumbsup: (You want one? that will be 45 please ................. on yer bike! )

First the Acer backup system wrote 2 unreadable DVD's so I stopped wasting those.

Had a problem after installing MS Office 2007 with a message box saying " ???? line could not be found in OLEAUT32.DLL". This took a lot of sorting out by my son-in-law who is an IT manager with a big building soc. Took him ages but he sorted it. Was something to do with that dll being an old version and a newer one needed to be registered through Vista ................ right over my head. Anyway, I think he's getting a bit fed up of me calling ............. help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I'm here asking.

My new problem is again Registry orientated in which I have no experience.

Looking forward to some good help, so thanks in advance.

Even many more experienced users than you are extremely careful when making registry changes, so it is a very good idea to get experienced help. Welcome to BC!
