Also I guess if you did an uninstallation to the last programs that you installed before this error occured will solve the problem, if not then try to do a restoration to last point..

Good Luck..

copy the file from another system to the system32 directory, or run from start run -- sfc /scannow.  But be careful of this command, it takes you back to distribution files, so all those zillions of microsoft patches and service packs have to be reapplied.  Try anything reasonable before running sfc /scannow.  Also check for viruses, the user32.dll is often infected by network type viruses.
