Install problem

Whan I try to install a new program in my computer I get a message that there is som damage in the kernel32.dll file. I´ve downloaded this file and my thought was to replace it. The problem is I can´t delete the first kernel32.dll file because the answer is it is impossible because windows has it in use. Could I replace or repair this file, if so how ??

Thanks in advance

Well, you could boot to DOS from a floppy. Put the new kernel32.dll on the disk too. Then first rename the old one:

Zoinks!  What happened??

Continued:

At the A: prompt type

c:
cd windows\system
ren kernel32.dll kernel32.old

then

copy a:\kernel32.dll c:\windows\system

If you need a boot disk go to Control Panel, Add\Remove Programs, Setup, and make one.

Zigy  ! Welcome to E-E! Its common courtesy to provide comments unless you know your answer is the only answer and is 300% correct and is what the questioner is looking for and will fix their problem. Please don’t take this personally, (others could let you know before I and not so diplomatically) I made the same mistake when I first arrived and someone was nice enough to point it out to me (It hurt my feelings, but I soon realized its teamwork that’s used here). This accomplishes a couple of things: First: it doesn't lock the question allowing more exposure to other experts allowing a faster fix (many problems require an interactive dialogue to troubleshoot them properly), Secondly: it gives the questioner the option to make an award based on the best comment that helped the most in fixing their problem and it is also is common courtesy to other experts.  Again welcome and look forward to working with you in the future, a lot of teamwork is used at this forum, as you will see! :>)  Quote shamelessly stolen from Dave, Thanks again Dave

Your answer may be correct, and I hope it is, after all the main goal here is to help the questioner, but when you propose an answer it removes the "accept comment as answer" button thereby robbing the questioner of the choice to choose which expert helped the most. If your comment is chosen by the questioner, you will be awarded the points.
Thank you  
Steve
