I'm not sure it will fix your problem, but assuming you boot to the floppy disk, type the following commands:

ren shlwapi.dll shlwapi.bad
copy a:\shlwapi.dll c:\windows\system

Then reboot.

In DOS type    COPY C:\dl file path\SHLWAPI.DLL C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHLWAPI.DLL    where dl file path is where the file is. Change C:\ to A:\ if on floppy.
I really need to learn to type faster.   : /

ok...  I got the .dll file copied to the registry but now I'm getting an error stating " the SHELL32.DLL file is linked to missing export SHLWAPI.DLL:SHRegetUSValueA ".  Where do I go from here ?
