Error -5 from inflate error?


New Member
Running vista on an Acer PC. Am only able to boot in safe mode. Purchased your cd and tried automated repair and got a message saying to use easyre for 2000. When I put in the commands you list in option two for manual repair I get a command not found response. So I try rebooting again, when it gets to my desktop my icons and keyboard do no respond and I get the following message

error -5 from inflate: (null)
error decompressing shell32.dll

at this point nothing works on the desktop, keyboard does not work but I still can move the mouse.

any suggestions?

If you can boot the PC, even into Safe mode, the boot doesn't need repairing.
Your problem is a broken OS, and System Restore to a point before the problem would be your first course of action.

Found out the two error messages were related to google drive, uninstalled drive and problem gone. However, the non responsive desktop has not been resolved. I tracked down the problem to the"network store interface service", disabling it in safe mode let we regain use of my pc but now I am unable to gain access to the Internet. Any suggestions?
