I have tried "Regsvr32 Sccrun.dll" to resolve, but the problem is reoccuring. May I have some assistance please?

REGSVR32 "C:\Windows\System\Scrrun.dll"

Go to start>Run and type regedit. Press enter.

Navigate to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\KnownDLLs
Right click on KnownDlls and choose New>String Value
Name the string Value scrrun
Double click on this new string value and modify the value data to read: scrrun.dll

then reboot.

If this doesn't work then you need to run repair....
