    What is the full message? Topic lines are not good for that.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the root wp-config.php & .htaccess files and the the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    In your root WordPress folder. If you are using an FTP client, ensure that it is configured to show all files as .htaccess files are often hidden by default.
