I found this http://techaddictive.com/solved-wlmail-exe-ordinal-not-found-the-ordinal-459-could-not-be-located-in...
Stuff like this needs caution though.

Re: Bright Sparks

And the annoying thing about that is it gives you a box with [OK] to click to get rid of it,  Yeah  ?

Re: Bright Sparks

There are lots of references to this problem.  It seems to arise because of incompatibilities between different versions of urlmon.dll.  I would see if there is a later version of the ATI CCC software you could try.  A couple of reports on this thread http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-performance/the-ordinal-459-could-not... say that this worked.

Doing a little light googling produces several references, including Microsoft's own forums, the majority of which connect the problem to removing IE.
In most cases it seems to be cured by reinstalling  IE and applying any relevant Windows Updates.
Why remove it, no-one makes you use it?

Re: Bright Sparks

Before you start, try to work out what version of urlmon.dll you have and whether it changes after you install Internet Explorer.  Maybe uninstalling Internet Explorer caused your computer to revert to an older version of urlmon.dll?

That's fine if you are 100% certain it's a standalone item with no interaction/dependencies/sharing. Sadly we know Microsoft's history with IE (blatant examples Outlook Express and Windows Update) and that certainly was NOT the case in the past. I for one don't believe they've done a 100% cleanup job with later versions on later OS's.
Of course it may be the other software that is at fault, assuming that IE is installed and that the required routines are there.  Wink
Good tip from RR on noting the versions; I'd do a whole PC search to see where copies are lurking and what they are.

You cannot go backwards in service packs so if you installed Windows 7 from disc then updated it to Service Pack 1 you could not then use your disc to repair it.
