Go back to a known good Windows restore point before the issue occurred.
Try the tips listed in this thread.
Open up the Run window and enter the following:
sfc /scannow ----> this will scan you critical system files and attempt repairs. note the space between the c and /

Many thanks but still have the problem, the scannow shows everything to be alright but I have been told to try renaming the msi.dll fie to old and then form a new one, so will try that approach Eric
