  1. ROBERT NUANES replied on March 14, 2013: » COMCTL32.dll is the ‘User Experience Controls Library' application extension file type and is a valid Microsoft system file.

    I'd recommend you to run a System File Checker (SFC) scan on your computer. SFC tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the system files by using the correct versions.

C:\users\Fingle\AppData\local\temp\Low\AQ2KHEP8.htm appears and ESET ttal protection warns me that there is a Threat-HTML/Scrinject.B.gen virus-. I immediately delete it but if i try to print again, the same happens.

    I went through the CFC routine and was told that "Windows Resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. details are in the CBS.windir\logs\CBS\CBS.log for example C:\Windows\logs\cbs.log" Then appears prompt "C:\Windows\System32. I go through the find flles routine as prompted and nothig happens!

  4. BRADLEY COPPIN replied on March 17, 2013: » Yes, you can reinstall Windows 7 if you have the installation disc. Important:

    Formatting your hard disk during a custom installation of Windows 7 permanently erases everything on the partition that you are formatting, including your files, settings, and programs.

    Back up any files and settings you want to keep so that you can restore them after the installation is complete. You'll need to reinstall your programs, so make sure you have the installation discs and product keys for the programs you want to use in Windows 7, or setup files for any programs you downloaded from the Internet.
