New Hardware RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI All,

    Hi there i'm back with a new problem.

    I bought myself a new PC and i wanted to start my windows again and it failed,so i had to repair the windows that was on it, so it could get updated on the new hardware. Halfway this process an error message came on and said something about a dll file beeing broken or missing but it kept repairing after i pressed OK .

    So when the install repair was over i had to enter my productkey again. but then the problems really started, when i tried to look for updates online to c if i had missed something it said it could noty find the start procedure for the update, then i tried to enter the url ie: www.microsoft.com and it refused it with the same message as before "cannot find start procedure".  So i tried to reactivate but that started to complain also telling me i need to buy an original but at the same time i'm running windows defender beta2 only usable for originals but it won't let me get past the "validation center" to redownload IE7 beta.

    So

    A) can't activate

    B) can't start update

    C) missing dll-file called InternetGetSecurityInfoBuyUrlw wininet.DLL

    Q: do i need to completely reinstall with a format c or not?

    and if so will i be able the reactivate my windows XP pro

    Thank in advance

    PS: everything was bought seperate, casing, motherboard, CPU and memory
