Did you try what kendall.a suggested?

Open Command Prompt, I do not have an XP machine in front of me, so I do not remember how this is done in XP, but you should be able to acces it by going to start menu->programs->accessories->system tools->command prompt (apologies if this is incorrect, but as I say I do not have an XP machine in front of me)

Once the command prompt is open, simply type:

sfc /scannow

then press enter and it will check for and replace any corrupted .dll files if it can, it may take a while to complete.

Then see if your problem still exists.

OK jjoe, let's keep it simple.

First of all, open My Computer --> C: --> Windows --> System32

In the System32 folder, try to locate the file uncdms.dll .. please note down the size too, if you find it. Please post the results here, whether you found the file, and what is its size.

Forget about Revo Uninstaller. Let's keep things simple, and just use the default Add/Remove. So, follow these instructions.

Click the Start button and select the Control Panel utility.
Double-click the Add or Remove Programs icon.
In the Add or Remove Programs window, locate the Windows Desktop Search.
Is it there? If yes, press the Remove button.
Restart your computer.

Does this fix the problem? Please post back.

Also, please tell whether you have the Windows XP CD with you. If yes, then that's good, and if the above steps fail, we will tell you further.

Just minor correction.

Start Menu --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Command Prompt

It's not under the System Tools .

Hi All,

Sorry for the delay, for this follow up posting.
After trying all of the suggestions, I still had the same problem.
The [commercial reference removed] serviced the pc, and found out that
their was an major virus that trigged this problem.

All postings lead to windows updates problems, didn't think
about viruses as the main problem.

Again, sorry for the delayed posting, and again thanks
to everyone for their input.
