Hiya, I'm new, so go easy on me... Aaaanyway if you could be so kind as to help me, here's my problems...

wbemcomn.dll hasn't worked in the past year or so... I'm finally fed up with it always erroring when I try to open alot of programs and such, it says "This application failed to start because wbemcomn.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." I've tried on several occasions to download a new version and replace the old one, but still it never works...

And most recently Windows Live Messenger (the newest version) just freezes right when I type in my PW and attempt to sign in... it stops responding, strangely enough it's also the same with Windows Media Player except that it freezes right when I open it...

Any advice would be helpful... I'm tired of ignoring and working around my computer problems x_x
