shdocvw.dll Missing

Specs: Windows XP, Core Duo

If your computer can't start and gives you the shdocvw.dll is missing error. Copy it off a windows install disc, out of the Windows\systems32 directory or off of a friends computer. Put it on a CD or floppy if you still have those. USB drive if you can access that from DOS(which you probably won't be able to do). Then turn on the broken computer go Ctrl alt del to get to Task Manager. File>New Task > cmd.exe to bring up Dos prompt. Then copy the file into the c:\Windows\system32 directory (Google for basic Dos commands if you don't know these). It may not let you do a straight copy in there ACCESS DENIED if it does this simply copy the file to the C: drive then rename it to shdocvw.old then copy it into the appropriate folder and rename it back to shdocvw.dll. Reboot! It worked for me.
