Hello all.
Can anyone help me? I'm trying to install AVG and everytime I try to install it, I get the notorious "cannot find SHELL.DLL" message. I've been to various websites to try to download it but it still will not work. Also, after I close out of the installation window, I see a message that says, " Cannot find file C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINE~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WZS9.tmp\setup.exe(or one of its components)."

Can someone please help?

I got that error while helping my friend. Simple fix.

Download this file if you're on Windows 98

If you're running NT4/2000/XP download this file.

For Windows 98 place shell.dll in C:\Windows\System\

For NT4/2000 put it in C:\Winnt\System32\

For XP put it in C:\Windows\System32\

Good luck :)
