My brother's friend screwed with my brother's computer and cannot fix his mess.
My brother says he keeps getting freezes and not working properly. The main problems seems to be an error with his Shell32.dll. This is the result of a scan he did;
C:\Windows\...\shell32.dll Error:Data error (cyclic redundancy)
I, on his behalf, went through a multitude of sites and about a half dozen downloads for shell32.dll automatic fixers and each and every one of them 'claim' they can fix it but require a 'purchase' before they do anything. I tried microsoft but they just lead me to another 'pay' site, I tried Cnet downloads..same thing. PCWorld has download but they too are pay first sites.
Anybody have any suggestions? He is using Windows 7.
