Spybot reporting framedyn.dll not found after SP3 reinstall

After re-installing SP3 on my XP box while trying to figure out a different software issue I started getting the following dialog message alert while starting Spybot.

  1. framedyn.dll not found

I found this MS document that covers this topic 319114.

After verifying that the %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\wbem\framedyn.dll file was there I checked that the system path variable contained the %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\wbem paths.

I didn't pick it up at first but I found in the MS document they talk at the start about the path containing Wbem and then later in the document talk of it as wbem. I then verified that the %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem folder was lower case and then checked the system path variable had an upper case 'W' now and changed it back to lower case. The re-install must have changed this setting.

A good check to verify the path is the problem is to type "ping" at a command prompt. If you get the following error you have a path problem :-

  1. 'ping' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

All in all thank again MS for a great user experience.....arrrgggh
