On startup, a pupup message said:
fldrclnr.dll, wizard_RunDLL not found!

Will this error lead to big problem?

Please help if you could!

FLDRCLNR.DLL wizard_RunDLL not found! = Desktop cleanup util

1. To ensure the PATH environmental variable includes the %SystemRoot%\System32\WBEM (Web Based Enterprise Management) folder:

? Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

? On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.

? Under System Variables double-click the PATH environment variable.

Note: If no PATH is listed, click New. In the Variable name box, type Path. Type or paste the bolded line next into the box labeled Variable value. Then skip to the very last item below and click the OKs.

? Type the following and then press ENTER, and if other system variables appear, do not remove them:


? Click OK each time you have the option.

2. Does the applicable DLL file need compressing?

Note: Check the i386 folder (path may be similar to: C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\FolderName\i386) to see if the last "L" of the applicable DLL file is an underline:

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type the command similar to the following by replacing the "xxxxx" with the correct filename, ensuring the correct path, and then press ENTER:

Expand "C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\FolderName\i386\xxxxx.dl_" "C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\FolderName\i386\xxxxx.dll"

c. In Windows Explorer, move xxxxx.dll from the i386 folder to the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

Note: Your particular folder may be named something other than "Windows."

d. Click Start, and then click Run.

e. In the Open box, type regsvr32 xxxxx.dll, and then click OK.

f. When you receive the following message, click OK:

DllRegisterServer in xxxxx.dll succeeded.

3. Where does the applicable "xxxxx.DLL" file exist? See if copying that file from wherever it exists to the location indicated in #2c above to see if the situation is corrected.

4. When you view the "Files Stored on This Computer" heading in My Computer, is the "Shared Documents Folders" missing for any user, [Q319825]?

5. If you have for any reason experienced problems or anomalies using a particular Profile, consider that profile as damaged and create another, [Q326688].

6. Depending on the applicable DLL file involved and the overall system situation, you could start your computer from the Windows CD, and perform an in-place upgrade (Reinstallation, which does not mean using an "OEM Restoration" disk), [Q315341].

will this help?

Someone suggested me trying this:
uncheck 'Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days'.

What do you think?

kwokwai, Did you try a File search for fldrclnr.dll?

Start>Search>All files and folders then type in: fldrclnr.dll

and click the Search button.

There should be a copy of that file in your C:\Windows\System32 folder and your C:\Windows\System32\dllcache folder.

Thanks for yr help! but I have unchecked that "cleanup desktop wizard", and now the error doesn't appear again!

I have done a search to that file, but I think I wouldn't replace it with a new one.

kwokwai, The file in your E:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder is probably 80.5 KB and the one on your CD is probably smaller because it's compressed. You probaly also have that file in theE:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ dllcache folder but to see the dllcache folder you must go into Folder Options>View tab and uncheck ''Hide protected operating system files'', click Apply/OK.
