How to fix odbc32.dll error
Posted on 2011-09-29
Out of the blue my laptop will not start up my Windows XP due to the winlogon.exe unable to locate the odbc32.dll. I tried restarting in safe mode and get the same problem. Here is exactly what happens;
1. When starting in normal or safe mode;
a. Winlogon.exe unable to locate component: This application has failed to start because ODBC32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
b. I click "OK"
2. User Interface Failure: The Logon User Interface DLL misgina.dll failed to load.
Contact your system administrator to replace the DLL, or restore the original DLL.
a. I click "Restart", This is the only option available.
3. It loops back to #1 and on and on.
Can someone help me with this problem. I can't get to windows at all to check the recycle bin if I deleted the .DLL etc. or restore from a previous point, etc. I have at least one critical file I need to get to.
