Missing File

I installed IE 8 on my computer, then uninstalled it due to internet banking incompatibilities. However, now the machine will not boot fully. Firstly I got an error message that iertutil.dll was missing & no toolbars, taskbars or icons, so I replaced that dll file. Now I am getting the message that it cannot find 'ordinal 166' within that dll file. The computer is running XP Pro fully updated with all microsoft updates including SP3

I tried this previously & it told me it could not verify the files & to make sure I have cryptograhic service running & I'm not sure how to do that when I have no desktop!

You probably need to download it on another computer, put it on USB flash, on the target computer run taskmanager and launch installation from task manager.

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

This is what I did for IE7 as I cannot access the desktop or the internet on the afflicted computer. It extracted the files & proceeded with the verification but then came up with the message previously mentioned. Is there anyway I can find out if the cryptograph service is running? I only have a desktop picture, nothing else. Booting into safe mode also brings the same problem ( don't know why I thought it might not!!) Sorry if I'm not providing all the requisite information but it is so difficult to remember it all!

From task manager start command prompt (File | Run | cmd) an then type in command "sc query cryptsvc" (without brackets) to see if the Cryptographic Services are running. If they stopped try to run "sc start cryptsvc" then rerun IE installation.

Use the same procedure and download dial-a-fix. Unzip to a usb drive, and run it from task manager on the pc. Select the options to fix the crypto services and re-register explorer and IE. get it here:

Take a look further down the download page for more detail:

Hi,
I tried the crypt thing & it said start-pending so I exited & re ran the IE setup. It got to finalizing installation, then a window popped up saying it 'could not verify the integrity of the file Update.inf check the cryptographic sevice is running.' I checked again & it wasn't so went through whole process again with same result. This is very frustrating!!

Bear in mind that before you perform a repair installation of Microsoft Windows XP, you must uninstall Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 from the Windows XP-based computer. If you perform a repair installation of Windows XP when Internet Explorer 7 is still installed, Internet Explorer will not work after the repair is completed.

To resolve this issue, uninstall Internet Explorer 7 from the computer, and then install Internet Explorer 6. After Windows XP is repaired, you can reinstall Internet Explorer 7.

Hi,
Many thanks to you all for the help. However, it seems totally beyond any sort of workaround as when the requisite file was copied it then came up with saying a part of  that file was missing!
I have decide the only way forward is to start again & do a system reinstall. I think maybe something to do with the fact it's a Dell laptop that is not helping.

Again, many thanks for all your help & apologies for the long absence - family crisis.
