windows xp home ed. version 5.1.2600 SP3 built 2600 - cannot open add/remove programs Run dll as an app error box RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows XP Home Ed. Version 5.1.2600 service pack 3 built 2600.  Every time I try to open add/remove programs I get the Run dll as an app error box? also my adobe and various other programs on start up are giving me the error message that they have encountered a problem and have to close! I had problems with updates too but I ran FIXIT and I think they are now fixed? They would download but fail to install.  I am not great with computer jargen so please in plain english people.  I have no money to get someone to fix this so need to do it myself. Please someone help. I have Kaspersky internet security 2012 and scan my computer regularly so don't think I have any viruses etc.
