winrnr.dll error message

Post by geecee »

Not sure if I should have posted this here but I am using Windows Vista Home Basic OS.

I don't know what's happened but about two days ago I started getting the following message repeatedly appearing.

I have looked on the internet to see how to fix the problem but I am a bit wary of trying any of the suggestions I have read. Has anyone at Eileen's experienced this problem or can anyone offer sound advice? I would much appreciate it. Many thanks.

I haven't seen this error myself, but you might try restoring the file from your Windows Vista installation DVD, if you have one - see How to extract missing system files from the DVD of Windows 7/Vista.

Thanks Hans for your prompt reply. Unfortunately I do not have an installation CD/DVD.

There is a number of "safe" options here like running an antivirus scan or running a scannow command, running system restore or updateing drivers... Its worth a try.
Try the options here.

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

Running the system file checker is the most likely of the solution pointed to in Rudi's link, so I'll write out the steps here:

- Click the Start button.
- Type cmd.exe
- cmd.exe should be the first item in the list of search results.
- Right-click cmd.exe and select 'Run as Administrator' from the context menu.
- In the Command Prompt window, type the following line, then press Enter:

sfc /scannow

- Don't omit the space between sfc and /scannow.
- This will check all Windows files.
- When it's done, restart Windows (it may ask you to do so anyway).
Regards,
Hans

Thanks Hans. This is the result I got from the sfc /scannow option. No luck with solving the problem.
