Default Shareware For Missing \system32\ Missing File ???

Hello, I am running WinXP Home SP2. I have been trying to use the clipboard and can't find the file. I have visited many sites and all tell me the same. The clipboard in Win XP has become the ClipBook Viewer. As I was told, I did a
system check for all files and folders for clipbrd.exe..........
Even: %windir%\system32\clipbrd.exe Nothing.......
I am convinced that the file is missing and need to find a
download somewhere. I don't want to pay $60 for MS tech
support. Perhaps someone knows of shareware that would
have clipbrd.exe One site suggested a free download of
Word Perfect 12, because there is a clipboard in it, but I
was unable to download it. It might have been illegal
anyway. Any ideas guys ???

Put in your XP CD and do the same search but target your CD drive when it asks where you want to search.

No luck in search on XP CD search for clipbrd.exe or clipsrv.exe Found clipsrv.exe in current system32 file but could not open it or pin it to start menu. MS site just told me in archive search that ClipBook Viewer is in system32 file as clipsrv.exe. Thanks

It has been a big problem in forums for XP users. Some suggest downloading clipboard from an older version of Windows, but I don't have access.

You may need to show hidden files by clicking Tools, then Folder Options and select Show hidden files and folders.

Thanks Steve, but "show hidden files and folders" was already checked/enabled in tools for folder ops in search.

Everything on the XP CD is compressed, how do you propose that the file found would be found?

No clipbrd.exe or clipsrv.exe was found on CD. The search only lasted very few seconds. Is this normal on a Win XP Home CD search. Baffled. Thanks Friend.

Local Drive C > Windows > Service Pack Files > i386, and look for clipbrd.

If it's there, right-click and choose Pin to Start menu.

Thanks again. I searched C:Windows>Service Pack Files> i386 clipbrd and the results showed two Help Files for Clipbrd. One was 25kb and the other was 45kb. They were files that only explained how to use clipboard.

Instead of using the Search function, use Windows Explorer and do a manual search for clipbrd.

I don't understand how a file is emailed, but I am very grateful for your effort my friend. Please instruct me about getting the file from Outlook Express to my system and how to pin it to start menu. I apologize for my ignorance. Your subnovice, Gregory Thanks !!!

There is nothing ridiculous about it, its called troubleshooting, and you are not legally allowed to redistribute Microsoft files.

I now believe that clipbrd.exe was probably erased during a few clean-ups I did, when files are erased that you never use, to free up space on your hard drive. Lesson learned.
