Windows 7: Missing DLL file

Missing DLL file

Sorry if this is in the wrong area.

I have a brand new Dell Inspiron and was missing the msstdfmt.dll file. I downloaded it and put it in the system32 folder, but it still says it is not there. Can anyone tell me what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you

Mike

Any ideas?
