HI,

I have been using IE6 forever and its terrible. If I open more than 10 windows it freezes up or just 'encounters an error' and closes.

I downloaded IE8 yesterday and when I open the set up it installs everything and then I get this error
message:

The procedure entry point SHRegGetValueW could not be located
in the dynamic link library SHLWAPI.dll

I have no idea what this means. But I really need to get IE8 fast as I have an online business
that requires Internet around the clock.

Can someone give me a different place to download?? xox

Fast replies needed!!!!!!!!!!

Very simple. Go to Microsoft Update and it will scan your computer for critical updates including SP3 and IE8 and then download them. Be patient. It will take a while especially if you haven't updated for a while.

It appears that you are running Windows XP SP1 (or even no SP).

SHRegGetValueW is a function included in SHLWAPI.DLL version 6.00 and later. Which in simple words means that you need at least Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed.

It is not mentioned by you whether you are running 32 bit Windows XP or 64bit Windows.
If you are running 64 bit, its displayed on the boot screen. If you dont see "x64 Edition" when you boot into Windows, you are running 32 bit Windows. Also when you open any folder, then in the menu select Help > About, if you see "x64 Edition" you have XP 64 bit edition, else 32 bit.

Latest service pack for 32 bit Windows XP is SP3. Download SP3 for Windows XP 32 bit:

Latest service pack for 64 bit Windows XP is SP2. Download SP2 for Windows XP 64 bit:

You can order a CD of SP3 if you want.

Or use a download manager like Free Download Manager (http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/). It will continue to download when you reconnect after hangup.

BUT I guess it would cost a lot of money using a dialup connection, downloading for 30 hours. So better order a CD or ask a friend if they have it.

If your dial up costs not much, then keep downloading. When I had a dial up back in 1998, it costed me a lot and I used to have big telephone bills.
