Hi,

It is now around two weeks that I receive this message on a blank page when I run some CD-ROMS that have got some video clips on them. I tried the windows installation disk's video clips and I received the same message. I did not have this problem before. It might have happened after running a program that deletes the unnecessary .dll files. This program has saved all the discarded files on a directory now. Also I might have unintentionally deleted something myself and the program may not be the culprit after all.

What should I do?

Regards,

Rama Fayaz

Since your problem is with the dll's, you should go to the directory with all the removed files, and move all the .dll files to c:\windows\system (or wherever your windows\system directory is).  This should solve your problem.  If it doesn't, reinstall the program you are using or if you are using media player, goto Control Panel, then click on add-remove programs.  Click on Windows Setup then navigate to accessories and remove the check next to media player.  Click Ok until you get back to the control panel.  Now go back and put the check back again then click ok till you get to the control panel.  It should ask you to instrt the windows 95 CD so it can install it.  Now it will work.
