Computer froze then fails to restart - winlogon / MSVCP71.dll problem
Posted on 2006-05-17
My computer just froze and was CPU=100%, not even the mouse responding. I switched off and on, but it got past the Windows is loading screen and failed to get to the logon screen. I get a message "Winlogon.exe - unable to locate a component .... MSVCP71.dll not found"
This computer isrunning on XP home, SP2
I can boot up in safe mode, and I searched for this file. I've got at least 10 copies of it in various places, including on the root C:\
However it still won't start normally.
Any ideas please?
Panic - it's stopping me working on a deadline project!
