I am getting this error message.  I do not have the Windows XP CD and my other CPU's run windows 7 so I cannot copy the urlmon.dll file.  Is there another fix.  No prompts come up in windows

Can you please mail it to josh@beancountersonline.com?

Can you walk me through what I need to do to get it on that PC.  The only thing that comes up is a blank screen with no taskbar and no windows icons.  If I press the windows button, nothing happens

As mentioned above. Download IE8 and save it on a removable device.

Boot the affected machine onto safe mode with command prompt>type   "explorer" without quotes.

Browse to IE8 installer and install.

Reboot and problem should be resolved :)

I was downloading windows updates along with explorer version 8.  After the reboot, I started to get this message.  I do not get anything in regular windows.  I brought up safe mode with the command prompt and currently having "C:/Documents and Settings\Adminstrator" on the screen

Ok - This still does not seem to be working.  I did not receive your file, but I downloaded explorer 8 to my pen drive, put it in the usb port and typed explorer.  I just ended up getting the error message again

hmm ok i think u need to uninstall all windows updates as nothing seems to be working there so use this command to open add remove programs


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>appwiz.cpl
after that check the boz which says "show updates" and uninstall all updates and also uninstall IE after removing updates restart this computer and if still nothing works download and install  this utilty and click on "care" button and let it run and reboot the pc
