I am working around a strange problem, my PC work well on all network function on TCP/IP, but there is a failure in Sharing Printer and Folder, only in one direction, from my PC to the other, i can't explore also my shared folder, and I have the "function not correct"  error, for example running directly \\mypc\mySharedFolder.

I am sure that the explorer.exe chain or the svchost.exe chain or other, are corrupted, I find with DependencyWalker some problem in, SHLWAPI.DLL, MPR.DLL and DWMAPI.DLL is missing.

Is it possble to check if a workable chain is present in \%WinDir%\System32 folder, starting from a basic component of the operating system ?

You can always open a cmd prompt and enter

sfc /scannow

This will check your system files and replace corrupt versions from either a cached location or from your XP CD (so make sure you have your XP installation CD handy). Also after having done that you should recheck your windows updates and install them if necessary.
