Safely Remove Hardware

Dell Inspiron 1545
March 4, 2010 at 05:48:16
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional sp3, 1.995 GHz / 3032 MB
Ok I got my 2 GB jump drive in the USB. When you remove it you should always click the saftly remove hardware icon. When I right click and select safely remove hardware I get a RUNDLL error box and it has An exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll"
The XP install is only a few weeks old. Is there some dll missing? The drive was a replacemeant from Dell and it was imaged by them.

It seems to me that dll file is corrupted, you can try to restore your system to a previous restore point (Your data will not be lost) if that somehow wont work.

Try and reinstall your computer..

Be sure to backup your important data, by either burning it to a cd/dvd or by copying it to a usb stick or harddrive and turn off your pc before unplugging it, to ensure your data is safe.

Best of luck!

Yes I saw that link after I posted thanks for the help. LoneGunman89 thanks for your suggestion also. I cannot just reinstall Windows for a small issue like this. I would just deal with the error before I did that. I have a bunch of programs that would take days or weeks to reinstall.
