I’m using Vista platform and about two days ago I started getting this error every time I tried to run a program, except for MSWord and Windows Messenger.
C:WindowsSystem32Version.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.
I cannot even install an Anti-Virus Programs which many forums I read suggest, because I get the error message right before the Setup Wizard starts. I am totally lost and would greatly appreciate any help.
Error in Vista platform while running any program
So you cannot run any other programs on your computer apart MS Word and Windows Live Messenger? Well that seems to a problem with the operating system. Some important registry entries that are required to support the applications that you use on your computer may be missing or might have been corrupted by an action that you performed on your computer.
Since you are saying that you need to install an antivirus then it seems that you did not have one already installed, and thus a virus may have invaded your computer and corrupted the vista program files, which are crucial for the running of the applications and therefore you might need to reinstall the operating system afresh.
But before you reinstall, I will suggest that you run the system restore utility and see if it may be able to remove the issues that you are having with your computer.
