Hello marcelt,

 Thank you for your reply back!

 When are you being notified of Kernel32.dll?  Are you getting any other error codes when you are notified?  I know you advised you had no luck with a system restore,  did you try to log in Safe Mode and perform a system restore? 

 Since you have Norton for your antivirus, disable the software and see if you are still getting an error message.  Again I don't know when you are being notified of Kernel32.dll file, but I found a link with a user who had a similiar issue.  Please let us know status.  Thanks!
