I use XP Pro. I can't get system restore to run. I get an error message [application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found]. Can someone help me?

Got this from another forum posted by Elvandil a moderator. It worked for the poster asking for help with this problem. Maybe it will work for you. Good luck..
Click Start, and then click Run.

In the Open box, type %systemroot%\system32\dllcache, and then click OK.

Right-click framedyn.dll, and then click Copy on the shortcut menu that appears.

Click Start, and then click Run.

In the Open box, type %systemroot%\system32\wbem, and then click OK.

On the Edit menu, click Paste. If you are prompted to replace the existing file, click Yes.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type %systemroot%\system32\dllcache, and then click OK.

In that folder that opens up look to see if you have a file named "framedyn.dll" If you dont then you need to download it first by going to this site http://www.driverskit.com/dll/framedyn.dll/852.html and downloading it. In the middle of the screen there is a blue link that sais "framedyn.dll Download" in blue text click on it and it will say that its extracting the file. Wait until it is finished and it will give you the option to save it to your hard drive. Do so and then after the file is done downloading to the location you have it set to download it to drag that file into the folder called "dllcache" that is the one that opens up after you completed step 2 above.

3. Right-click framedyn.dll, and then click Copy on the shortcut menu that appears.
4. Click Start, and then click Run.
5. In the Open box, type %systemroot%\system32\wbem, and then click OK.
6. On the Edit menu, click Paste. If you are prompted to replace the existing file, click Yes.


P.S dont worry about the folders snmp and xml having nothing in them because mine doens't either. The new file you just pasted should be on the outside of these 2 folders showing them with the new framedn.dll file you just pasted there.

Do not download files from the internet as they maybe infected with malware.

"Application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found" error message when you open the System Properties dialog box

Try that, and see if it fixes your issue.
