That is a problem that I wouldn't wish on anyone. It's likely the OS has suffered some major damage, but let's see if a token WIN.INI will help repair this.
Use MSCONFIG as noted at http://service1.symantec.com/support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001011114021106 and restore WIN.INI
spool32 error in KERNEL32.dll
no printer port found
win.ini does not come up in search.
no com3 or com4 showing in system.
I'm trying to install a printer (USB port) hp officejet 5500. Printer box in control panel shows no printer, but when I try to install it sez it's already installed.(the files are in temp file)
what do I do now?
