- What's your OS?
- I can't find kdp17b1.dll in google. Are you sure it is correctly spelled? Can you tell (properties of the file might help) to what application it belongs? And do you know anything else about it?
- The file "DIMM.DLL" is part of Microsoft Multilingual IME, I read. This calls for more details on your configuration. I'm sure not everybody has installed multilingual IME.
- If you repost, give the full error messages.

In fact, if I wrote malware, I wouldn't take Multilingual IME complications into account. So check your system for malware first: use housecall.antivirus.com, adaware and spybot. This might find something. Or just as well, it might not.

Hope this helps,


Kees

You don't answer half of my questions, I think, but you reveal you use(d) Kazaa. That might explain everything.

Try System Restore back to a time Explorer didn't give errors. Or try to undo Spybot's changes if the removal caused the problems. You don't even tell how and when they started, which might give a clue.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
