Error on bootup of WinME says "The IPHLPAPI.DLL file cannot start...."
Posted on 2003-11-03
I get an error on bootup of WinME that says "The IPHLPAPI.DLL file cannot start. Check the file to determine the problem -- OK button". Click OK and the system appears to boot fine.
Some background info...
I am in a small office and have established a small TCP/IP network with 4 PCs all running WinME. I recently upgraded my Symantec/Norton Antivirus and Firewall software on each PC to the newer Norton Internet Security 2004. After doing so, I get this error occaisionally on bootup, but not every time.
I'm not sure how to fix this and Symantec won't respond to the email I sent them.
Any clue why this is happening? Is it due to the recent upgrade of Norton? How to fix or get rid of this error?
