    hello everyone i canot accec/start up internet explorer 7, and i cannot start msn messenger/live messenger becuse when i try i just get a error message saying this: "GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library. PSAPI.DLL"

    The weird thing is that i only got 1 psapi.dll in windows/system32
    i canot delete the file becuse it says it is in use, but i cannot see if any other software i got installed is using the file right now?
