I cannot install any new programs as I get the following message:
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\CABINET.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.
I have several good 'paid for' registry and spyware cleaners but these do not correct the problem.
My laptop has a fully registered and Microsoft Verified XP home installation with SP2 and Automatric updates work fine.
The real problem I think is that I cannot find my XP installation CD disk (which it seems is required to correct this problem.)
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
