Hello,

I have been having an error that pops up (seemingly) randomly for perhaps a month or so now.

The error reads as follows:

C:\Windows\System32\msxml3.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I am running Vista 64

As far as I can tell everything on my computer is functioning fine, but the error messages are annoying. I get them somewhat often when using IE and quite frequently when running Photoshop. They also seem to pop up pretty often with Norton alerts, but I have had a lot of other problems with Norton and have not renewed my subscription. That's a different topic entirely...

So far I have tried:

1) Running regsvr32 msxml3.dll
2) Running Combo Fix (I know I wasn't supposed to run it unless told to do so, but it was suggested to me that just running it might resolve my problem - Sorry.)

That's all I can think to tell you. I'm not sure what other information you might need. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer..

Thanks,
Seki

This is a tough one.Do you have previous restore points when it worked?

Do you have this error only while browsing in IE?

Did you try sfc /scannow?

Click on startmenu and type

cmd

Right click on it and run as administrator and run this command

sfc /scannow

See if that helps

The results from the sfc /scannow were: "Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them"

However, the scan seems to have fixed my problem. I do not appear to be getting the error message anymore.

Thank you for the help!
