JSI Tip 7628. When you try to install updates for Windows XP from Windows Update, you receive 'Winlogon.exe. Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point AssocIsDangerous could not be found in the dynamic link library SHLWAPI.DLL'?

When you attempt to install Windows XP updates from the Windows Update site, you receive an error similar to:

Winlogon.exe. Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point AssocIsDangerous could not be found in the dynamic link library SHLWAPI.DLL.

This behavior will occur if you install a Windows XP service pack AND you did NOT restart your computer prior to installing additional updates.

NOTE: As a result of your actions, some DLL files are now damaged.

To resolve this problem:

1. Create a fixit.txt file in the %WinDir%\System32 folder that contains:

cd cd windows\system32
ren winlogon.exe winlogon.old 
ren msgina.dll msgina.old
ren shell32.dll shell32.old
ren shlwapi.dll shlwapi.old
cd.. 
cd servicepackfiles\i386
copy MSGINA.DLL c:\windows\system32 
copy SHELL32.DLL c:\windows\system32
copy WINLOGON.EXE c:\windows\system32 
copy SHLWAPI.DLL c:\windows\system32

NOTE: If the above files are not in the %WINDIR%\ServicePackFiles folder, instead of:

cd.. 
cd servicepackfiles\i386
copy MSGINA.DLL c:\windows\system32 
copy SHELL32.DLL c:\windows\system32
copy WINLOGON.EXE c:\windows\system32 
copy SHLWAPI.DLL c:\windows\system32

use

expand <CD_Drive_Letter:>\i386\MSGINA.DL_ C:\windows\system32
expand <CD_Drive_Letter:>\i386\SHELL32.DL_ C:\windows\system32
expand <CD_Drive_Letter:>\i386\WINLOGON.EX_ C:\windows\system32
expand <CD_Drive_Letter:>\i386\SHLWAPI.DL_ C:\windows\system32
2. Boot the Windows XP CD-ROM or Setup start-up disks.

3. Press R at the Welcome to Setup screen.

4. Press C to invoke the Recovery Console.

5. Type the installation number.

6. Type the Administrator password.

7. Type batch fixit.txt and press Enter.

8. Type Exit and press Enter.
