Hi everyone

I downloaded browseui.zip from dll-files.com. Is this website ok? How do I replace browseui.dll in system32 with this one? Will this file fix my prob? (There is no "address bar" option in the taskbar)

Thanks

Downloading dll file off websites is usually a bad idea...

1) DLLs from DLL Download Sites are Often Outdated

2) Installing a Single DLL File is often a small fix for a larger problem

3) DLL Download Sites are Not Approved Sources for DLL Files

I suggest you instead get the file off an XP CD.

Are there any errors?

BTW is this XP SP3?
As M$ removed it in SP3.
To solve the problem all you need to do is get the browseui.dll from a pre SP3 XP CD and copy and replace it into your System32 directory

You may have to register the file??

That may fix it

Does that file exist on the hdd now?

Speedy: I can't find browseui.dll on my WinXP SP3 Disk, only BROWSEUI.DL_
How do you register the file?
Should I try replacing it anyway? How do I replace it?

It needs to be expanded from the cd, its probably an old version

By the looks of it, its upto 6.0.2900.5512

You need to copy that dl_ file to a folder on the hdd (off the cd).

Create a folder in C, and call it test

Then open a command prompt

So you type

cd c:\test

Then type:

Expand BROWSEUI.DL_ C:\windows\system32\browseui.dll

wainuitech: The intructions was useless. Same with yours speedy Well considering you asked how to repair Browseui.dll - and both reply's did that - did you use a SP3 XP CD or SP2 - the two are different.

Edited: just downloaded that Zip File - all it is was the SP2 browseui.ll file extracted from a XP SP2 CD, with a batch file telling it to install it and anther batch file to put the old one back ( I looked at the batch file commands) - the exact same thing as if it was done manually - or as per the two posted instructions.
