Hi

Goodness my computer is having a tough time. I have posted loads of questions here. Thanks to you all who have answered.

Now I am getting this blasted resource.dll error when I right click on the hard drive and windows xplorer keeps crashing. This has only started since I installed all the updates.

Windows is really driving me crazy now. Why won't it just work?

Format the damn thing!

I dont think resource.dll is part of Windows, well XP anyway.

Hi

Good idea. It's not quite as easy as that though. I have a whole load of Quick restore things. Like

Compaq System Recovery CD Disk 1
Compaq System Recovery CD Disk 2
Compaq System Recovery CD Disk 3
Compaq Evo Documentation Library CD
Compaq Resore Plus!
Compaq operating CD

I also have

Disk 1 & 2 of Quick Restore for model 5000 and Supplemental Quickrestore

The CD's look different and I don't know which I use with one another.

I also have a whole load of Data on this computer - like Gb's of it. What to do?

I found out the resources thing was an iomega thing.

umm, there might be a command in the startup thats screwing that up.

Use or get ccleaner, and then go to tools/startup. See if anything is pointing to a dead folder, or that Iomega folder, which is no longer there.

The problem is that it still "is" there. The iomega backup application goes halfway thogh preparing to uninstall and then closes. I can't find the iomega backup setup file to run it and delete it.

How was this Iomega drive connected? Externally? Internally?

Send Iomega an email. Ask them how to remove it!

Do you have a CD/DVD burner? Or another computer?

First thing first. What had you did recently to cause a big magnitude change towards your computer, music man? Did you install a driver, software, patches, fixes etc.? Have you tried performing a system restore? Have you attempted to flush out virus, spyware etc. using utilities? Have you tried reinstalling the driver for the hard drive(s) (I think this is a dumb statement, actually :rolleyes: )

Cheers :)

Donít bother with that in this situation, james.

Itís pretty clear that this system needs a format, it is continually missing important system files.

Yeah, but the thing is that he doesn't want to format his computer. :groan: If I were him I would format the HDD. Windows... meh
