I used bleeping to remove Home Search and everything seemed to go alright until I downloaded shell.dll. I cannot figure out how to unzip this to load it into the %windir%\system32 direction.

The computer seems to work fine but I have a program that will no longer load with the error message {C:\WINDOWS|systems32\autoexec.NT. The system fle is not suitable for running MS.DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.}

I am assuming that these two are related. Can anyone hlep me?

They are not related, but I can help you :thumbsup:

%windir% means the directory where your windows is installed. So you want to extract shell.dll into probably this directory:

c:\windows\system and c:\windows\system32

For the autoexec.nt error, copy the autoexec.nt from c:\windows\system32\repair to c:\windows\system32
