Windows File Protection for Shell32.dll (500pts to winner)

Posted on 2006-05-17

Hello all, I have a Windows 2003 server that keeps giving me a Windows File Protection notification.  I hit cancel, and checked the event logs.  The event logs stated that the shell32.dll file has been changed, and that it is the file in question.  I have not installed anything, and have current antivirus.  Any help would be appreciated.

    If you already applied SP1 for server 2003, than put in a setup cd for 2003 with integrated (slipstreamed) sp1.
    Then use the command
    sfc /scannow
    that should do it.
    If you don't use sp1, take a setup-cd without sp1.
