Windows 7: dwmhintdxupdate could not be located

16 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (french)
dwmhintdxupdate could not be located

I'm trying to update Skype and getting the message :
"The procedure entry point DwmHintDxUpdate could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll"

Most of the other posts regarding this error are related to screensavers. I Have no screensaver

I removed Skype, hopping this was an error updaing
Now I cant install it period and I really need Skype !

I vaguelly remember having this problem a few weeks ago, and by clicking OK over and over, it when away and the the software installed properly.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (french) and all updates and patches are installed

Thanks for the help
