I have been unable to reinstall miktex on a desktop for a while. Miktex is available on a network but, having no success running it from the desktop, I installed it locally.  When I try to run latex.exe  either directly or via winedt I receive the following error message:
 
The procedure entry point @mainint@8 could not be located in the dynamic link library tex.dll
 
Sorry for what is likely a basic operating system problem (I am running XP) but do11es anyone know what is the problem? I have downloaded and installed numerous versions of miktex and keep getting the same error.
