about 3 days ago, i was just on the computer. I went on the internet, tried downloading adobe after affects, and played minecraft. after awhile i got bored so i turned off my computer. When i decided to go back on later, i couldnt play my only 2 computer games which are wizard101 and minecraft. Internet, videos and other programs work just fine. Its just wiz101 and minecraft.

 

When trying to open wizard 101 i get 3 errors (see attached file). After all those messages go away i can type in my username and password to start the game, but it just tells me i am unable to connect to wizard101.

 

For minecraft, i have 2 different minecrafts installed. One of the minecrafts let me enter my password and username and begin playing the game, but after that the minecraft window just goes black and stays like that. When trying to play the OTher minecraft i get this error -

Java Virtual Machine Launcher 

Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile C:\Documents And Settings\Victoria\Desktop\Mineshafter-proxy.jar

 

ive tried uninstalling and then re-installing minecraft, thats all. It did not work though. I havent tried anything else yet. I have a windows Xp. If you need anymore info on my computer or need me to be more clear about some things, please let me know. Thank you.

Required reading :)http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/dciman32-dll-not-found-missing-error.htm .

 

Me, I would try running the sfc /scannow command, to repair/replace damaged system files.
