When I go to control panel>install/uninstall>windows setup, up pops an applet that says:
An error has occurred in your program, to keep working click ignore and save your work in a new file. To quit this program click close, you will lose information entered since your last save”.
I close that applet then I get another:
Rundll32 has caused an error in SetupXdll, rundll will now close.
I found this same problem on another support site, and the answer that worked for that one was:
"Your setupx.dll error is usually the result of first having deleted some
empty folders in Program Files that were placed there when Win Me was
installed that are used for optional components of Win Me and then using a
registry cleaner such as EasyCleaner which removed some necessary entries
required for Add/Remove Programs | Windows Setup to function because the
target folders were no longer present. You can avoid this happening in future
by not deleting such folders and similarly not deleting any values in the key
Ok, yes, I had run RegSeeker, so I restored the backups. I'm still having the same problem even after rebooting. I also tried restoring both of those files (rundll32 and setupx), but still the same.
Any other ideas?
