I need some help. I have just rebuilt a computer for my son. Celeron processor, 1 gig of memory, windows XP professional. Nothing really loaded to the system as of yet except a Belkin wireless card (F5D7000). The system runs great except on startup message tht the system cannot find the preflib.dll. Not much I can find on this error. I have tried registry cleaners, anti-virus (AVG), and malware with no luck.

Hope someone can help.

Not much info found, but what I did find, referred to a wireless card
I would try reinstalling the driver

That appears to have fixed it. Thanks for the help.
