Thanks for that info. You say that one of the MUIs may have been used and
would therefore have to removed....... how would I know if it had been used
and how would I remove it?
The DOS windows don't just seem to happen when exploring and hence viewing
new folders. I had some opening and closing today when I wasn't doing
anything. Would using any of the Sysinternals tools help me to find out what
is prompting the DLLHOST.EXE window to pop-up in the first place? I have had
a brief play with process monitor and can see dllhost.exe being called but
don't really know what to do next. A little information is a dangerous thing
