    try this, has explanation on how to fix. http://www.pcbanter.net/t3635.html

    Go to Start Run and type: CMD , and hit enter. In the resulting
    Command Prompt window, type: SFC /SCANNOW , and hit enter.
    You may be prompted to insert your Windows CD in the CD Drive.

    SFC =3D System File Checker. SFC will scan your system and replace =
    missing
    or damaged XP system files with the correct version.

    thanks for attempting to help me with this problem. i did the run action you described, my computer did the scan. it did not promt me to load any discs. still get the same dll message. Just don't understand. I guess i just have to hope i dont get too many links or whatnot that require that dll.cpuinf32 file.

    You have a conflict with another program ! -- What are you using to play those video files -- Do you have more then one player installed ? or did you install one just before this error started ? Uninstall any program to view your video file -- except one.
