Windows picture and fax viewer is gone

By swollenburg ·
Hi - I tried to run the regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll repair for this - but what I get is shimgvw.dll was installed but the Dll install entry point was not found. Dll install may not be exported, or a corrupt version of shimgvw.dll amy be in memory. Consider using Pview to remove it.

I went to the C drive and to I386 and found the shimgvw.dll entry and deleted it and then restarted the computer. I then went to another computer and copied the shimgvw.dll file over and placed it on the computer that I am having truble with and it still does not work.

What else can I do??

Replacing system files

by p.j.hutchison In reply to Windows picture and fax v ...

No, you should not do that manually, as XP has system protection and will either not allow you delete it or over write it, as it will replace it from one from cache.

Use MSConfig.exe and use its replace single file option or use SFC and use its /SCANFILE=<file> option to repair a file.
