When opening a number of software downloads I've made on kazaa and elsewhere that are rar, zip, .exe files, etc, I get the following message:
"Error Starting Program:
The __________ file is linked to missing export KERNEL32.DLL."
Followed by: "A device attached to the system is not functioning."
Not sure if it's related, but the icons from a number of these zips and unopened programs have switched from their unique icon representations to generic white and blue application symbols. What's going on here?
