I've been tolerating with this error for the past 2 months or so and have finally decided to try and get it fixed. Every time I open a program for example Windows Live Messenger, I'll get a pop up error saying: "C:\Windows\system32\pnrpnsp.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error." This happens with most programs that I try to open. Could someone help me fix this please?

Thanks in advance.~

Thanks for your reply hamluis.

I read through the link you sent me, the scan that I did said that this file had some sort of problem. However, I don't know where to get a good version of the pnrpnsp.dll. I also don't have my installation disk anymore, if that helps.

1.Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

2.Type the following command, sfc /scannow and then hit Enter key.

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

If prompted for the Vista install CD...I'm afraid you may be out of luck.

sfc /scannow rarely fixes bad image errors.If you can find a PC with same OS and version,copy the dll file and replace it with corrupted one or if you have your vista DVD go for repair install

good luck

Is it possible that one of you may have the file, and is willing to upload it for me ? Would appreciate that greatly, thanks.
