Dll files are small programs called up by main programs.

If Windows won't start normally, tap F8 while booting and select Safe Mode. If that works we might be able to do something from there. Otherwise it looks like you need to restore the system.

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome

Thanks for the information. We took it to our computer guy and he fixed it today for us. He said he had to re install windows. Said it had something to do with not shutting down corretly. We did have a power outage yesterday when i was on the computer. Anyway it is fixed now and we are back to work with it.

Thanks again
