    I'm online now...when I try to open any Word, Notepad, Wordpad, Frontpage, etc file I get an error message:

    "The procedure entry point CloseClipboard could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll"

    What to do?

    Try this:

    1.) Give following command in RUN dialog box:

    regsvr32 %windir%\System32\USER32.dll

    2.) If it doesnt work, then try to replace the USER32.dll file from the XP Setup!

    Thanks guys,

    But problem solved.

    First I tried to open a text file in my browsers.....didn't work with (stupid grrr!) Internet Explorer 6. Same error message.

    But Opera 9.01 was great....text file opened in a flash!

    Later on I restarted my PC and now the problem isn't there.

    Opera is great and IE succkkks!
