error loading SRCLIENT.DLL

by bighorn60 / July 11, 2005 6:37 AM PDT

I receive this message every time I open Win XP Pro. It also says "The specific module could not be found". I just click OK and continue on, it does not appear to be hindering me in any way. I am curious about any error messages because they might be a problem somewhere in the future. Can anyone enlighten me on this one. Thanks, Bob

Or rather "System Restore CLIENT".

Yes, it's a sign of trouble. Your System Restore feature is likely broken. Can you run SFC /SCANNOW ?

sfc/scannow

No, when I try to run it I get a message that it is unable to find it. I am using Win XP pro, an Intel Pent 111- 1 Gig CPU, 160 gig HD, 640 MG RAM. I am unable to run Restore, I get the message that it is unable to start and I should restart the computer and try again. Are the problems related?
Thanks,

Typo?

SFC /SCANNOW has a space after SFC.

If SFC is missing, that's a bad sign. You'll have to attempt a repair install.

I ran this and it checked all my dll files. I didn't get any error messdages, it just closed upon completion. I tried to download srclient from the web site mentioned in the next reply. srclient.dll seemed to download OK to my system but when I restarted the system I still got the error message.
Thanks,

No other error messages
by bighorn60 / July 13, 2005 7:23 AM PDT

Except for the Restore System not able to run I get no other error messages. I just re-installed Win XP Pro on a 160 Gig HD, so my system is pretty clean and new. I have updated to XP 2, and am using Panda Internet Security Platinum for my firewall and antivirus. Haven't downloaded SpyBot S&D yet, that was next. Didn't see anything that applied to my problem on the Microsoft site.
Thanks,
Bob

Best of luck.

Since you didn't follow my advice I must wish you the best of luck finding your issue. I'll keep an eye out for something specific and will report back if I find it.

I thought I was following your advice, but I went back to the site and REALLY read it, it helped. I only saw the error messages before and didn't look at the content. I was able to move the srclient.dll into the proper folder. The message no longer appears when I boot up. I thank you for your time and your help, my wife thanks you too. Continue helping people, its worth it.
Thanks,
Bob

What some miss is the cure or procedure in an article may not seem to apply and people write them off. Sometimes I find the fix I want to try, but the article isn't spot on.

This damage is from my experience spyware related and not easy to fix for most users.

Not From My Recent Experience
by KRN£★K£INK / January 21, 2008 10:26 PM PST
In reply to: Cheers!

I Recently Built a System & Installed XP Media Edition & Had Trouble when It Requested XP SP 2 Disk Which I Either Didn't Have Or Was Not Accepted By Setup. Installation Seemed to continue & Complete But When I Rebooted & Started Trying to Load Drivers & Programs I Received SR Client Error & RPC Server Unavailable. System Has Not Yet Been Online So Error Seems to Be Related to an Installation Issue.
