I keep getting the message SPLWOW64.exe when I try to pull up pictures or documents on MS Office Word and Publisher...maybe more, I do not know. I have run my Norton 360 virus program, did a chkdsk or whatever to check the disk and ran the defragmenter. This will not let me print anything. I uninstalled my HP 4440 printer driver and reinstalled. Nothing is working. Can someone help?
SPLWOW64.exe is a file of Microsoft Windows Operating System. The SPLWOW64.exe file in your system may be damaged.
You may need to download and Install splwow64.exe as shown here.
It sounds like it is just what I need, thank you. However, I am scared to do this...I didn't think the instructions were that clear. What will happen if I mess it up? Do I lose everything?
If anything goes wrong:
1. You can easily run system restore by going to: all programs – accessories - system tools - system restore
2. You can run system repair from your widows installation CD which you should have.
I have done a system restore, but I don't think I have a disk. I'm buying an online storage that includes mirror image, but right now I am in the trial period and do not have the mirror image capabilities yet. Then I won't be as afraid (as long as I can get booted up to use it, that is). I hate to spend the money to get it fixed somewhere when I have other things to get, like the online storage, along with my virus protection renewal in just a few days. I also decided to buy my photos and clip art, instead of sorting through CC and at $159, it wasn't cheap. However, I am already extremely happy that I've done it, because I like to work on art projects as well as write. I probably have already gotten my money's worth out of it.
Thank you so much for your help. It is greatly appreciated and I hope that I can return the favor somehow in the future.
