Accept DLL trouble

I use XP Home Edition.When I installed IE7 I started to get the following message during startup "The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic links library PSAPI.DLL"
Something seems to have come adrift,but I don't know what,or how to fix it.
Any advice would be appreciated.Thanks

OK, what's happening is that you have several copies of the PSAPI.DLL -file in your system and IE7 is trying to use the wrong one (I suspect). Do a search for the file on your harddrive and rename the files to PSAPI.OLD (or something) one at a time and see which one is causing the problem... It may also be that IE doesn't really need the ¤%#¤% file at all but I can't verify this as I've uninstalled the #"¤%#¤% thing as far as possible from my systems years ago... IF my reading is correct PSAPI is a Windows NT thing...
