    am trying to upgrade my pos ME box to XP without reformating since I have files on there I don't want to lose. I am unable to copy them to either a CD, ZIP, or flash memory device. I recieved this message "The option to upgrade will not be available at this time because Setup was unable to load the file E:\I386\WIN9XUPG\.DLL The system could not find the file specified."

    Is there anything I can do to get this POS working again? If I reinstal ME will it erase my files ? Sorry for the supid questions but Im having a long week and my brain is on vacation right now.

    I also recieved "Setup was unaable to locate or load setpapi.dll, or the file is corrupt. Contact your system administrator.

    reinstalling me will not erase your files unless you reformat

    reinstall me, backup the files you want to keep on cd or whatever, and format and install xp
