setup.exe screwing up...ntdll.dll

by Parabraves1 / February 27, 2010 11:10 AM PST

I'm trying to install a program for a phone. Download went fine but upon clicking I'm getting a setup.exe error, with further info telling me mod name is ntdll.dll. Googling the problem gave me a bunk dll download and people talking about replacing motherboards. Please tell me there's a better way.

Comp: Compaq Deskpro
OS: Windows XP Home SP2
Phone: Sony Ericsson
Security: Online Armor, Avira AV, Threat Fire (already tried disabling all security options and couldn't install)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
