Hello Twister

If you have the windows installation cd use that to enter the recovery console - System Recovery Options and try this - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker. That may replace the missing file.

thanks, managed to run system restore from booting windows disc and just seen this now. took 3 attemps to actually load anything from booting from disc though but got ther eventually

just running a full virus scan now, if that picks up nothing then ill have to check what this update was and see if thats the cause of it

ill keep you posted over the next day or 2
