Having just re-installed XP Pro after a disk failure, I then installed a fairly old Client Access version. I can't find out which but probably 3.1.2.

Now if I right click on a folder anywhere I get

 "CWBNACFS.DLL cannot run. Unable to get a handle to
CwbRdr"



A search on Google produced APAR II10147 showing a solution dating back to April 1997 but the solution is for Win 95 or NT.

I am also getting slow log on, etc.

The APAR reads

I have no idea how to achieve a similar result in XP Pro.

Any ideas please?


Many thanks
