NewNOD A few things come to mind not in any particular order. First - perhaps your Kernel32.dll is damaged. To reload it you can follow these instructions. Second - perhaps another Windows file is damaged or has the wrong version (due to a download changing it). Have you tried Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Tools>System File Checker? Although this is a more difficult possible solution (because one must make an unguided decision about which files to choose) it very well may be the answer. We know of a few people who have had various problems resolved by this fix. Please consider these possibilities and post your reply to them. By the way - we are unfortunately not programmers nor do we sell or work for ESET or Wilders (just in case anyone was wondering). There may be another one or two things we can suggest but we need to check our archives first. Best wishes.
