    Having the same problem -- Actually, it happens with a different file name
    listed every time I open a Microsoft program (Outlook, Excel, Word, etc., and
    Internet Explorer is completely not working) and for some reason my AntiVirus
    control screen won't open anymore -- not sure if that's related.

    Other dll files that have been flagged as 'not a valid Windows image' --

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\shfolder.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\TAPI32.dll

    I also get C++ or Visual Basic errors 'error in loading dll'

    Attempted to 'repair or detect [whatever the option is]' with Word 2003, but
    it said that Windows had locked access to the dll file that was needed (MAPI,
    I believe?)

    Please help . . .
