    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?

    Do you use an Antivirus (norton reccomended) and Firewall(Zone Alarm)?
    Run ScanDisk(Checkdisk in XP, goto Harddrive properties>Tools), Cleanup, A virus scan(update it first), Norton WinDoctor(youd be supprised, this sucker fixes alot), Disk Defrag.

    Hmm if all fails...try reinstalling xp (not a clean install)

    If that fails...lemme know

    ever thought about downloading winzip, winrar etc first ?......

    just a though....but I'm sure your not that stupid...

    Kernel32 errors normally mean a reinstall of win 95/98/me

    or maybe they're asosciated with another program...
