Tim,
Error is as above, but will reiterate, upon opening keyboard from control panel-message is >error occurred while windows was working with the control panel file C:\windows\system\main.cpl< This message is also occuring on the mouse settings, have tried copying this file via flop's of another machine, and tried loading "me" on top again but to no avail, must be something simple but it's got me stumped
Cheers steve

Hi,

The only reference I've found for your problem is this as a fix...

"The full path name of the language DLLs was not being saved when all available languages were being searched out. When a different language was selected, the attempt to load the DLL would fail because the full path name was not perserved."

But I'm not sure how this will relate to your problem - if it does at all...

At worst, you could always reformat and rebuild the system from scratch. That's pretty well guaranteed to fix the problem but a bit of a pain to preserve your important data if you dont have an easy way to back it up.

Cheers,
Tim.

Right on Tim
By the time I recieved your informative reply guess what, I'd formatted the hard drive, through frustration!!!!![fortunatly not to much to back up as the laptop is basically used to mirror stuff from my office/standalone ]Anyway this has resolved the problem, with little pain, Thanks
