I have recently reinstalled win 95 (deleted it entirely then reinstalled it, including the program files directory) and instead of the usual "windows is now setting up the following features" bit I get an error message saying...

Error starting program
The COMCTL32.DLL file cannot start.
Check the file to determin the problem.

I have reinstalled windows 3 times now and it keeps saying this, please help!

Search WHOLE HD and locate this file(s). According to Windows requirements,
there should be only ONE file, locatable by Win95, otherwise you'll
get an error. First of all check \Windows and \Windows\System folders.
