I am running Windows XP SP2 and decided to create a restore point, this what came up:
An exception occurred while trying to run
"C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll, Control_RunDll "C:\Windows\system32\sysdm.cpl",system"
Can anyone tell me how to fix this or at least tell me what it means.

found this may help

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, switch to Classic View and
double-click Folder
Options.

2. Under the View tab, click to check "Show hidden files and folders", and
uncheck
"Hide protected operating system files", click Ok.

3. Launch Explorer or double-click My Computer, locate to C:\Windows\inf,
right-click on SR (SR.inf) and select install.

4. If the system requests the XP CD, please insert the CD into CD-ROM and
finish
the installation according to the instructions.

Lets try this, ok? It just scans ur disk for errors...

Put your Windows XP into the drive, a screen may/should come up X on it.

Go to Start -> Run and type SFC /SCANNOW and click OK

Let System File Checker run.

When finished remove the XP CD and reboot the computer.

If this doesn't work we may just try to replace the files ourselves...
