The program can't start because COMCTL32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

i have googled everywhere and people say use your recovery disc, i have used it and theres nothing that i can see that can fix the problem!

Safe mode and everything is not working, i get the same problem pop up!

I see about a dozen of these files strewn around the install. Unless you have a path there's no telling which one is missing. That leaves you with doing a painstaking disk comparison with / transfer from another Win7 install, a repair install, or restoring from an image backup.
