    I am getting the following bogus error message popping up while Not
    on-line using Win XP Home.
    The named file will occasionally vary so I indicated it as
    Various_Filenames.
    I think it is some kind of virus but need help identifying it!
    Or I would like to know how to determine what the true source of this
    bogus error messages is by tracking it to is actual source and finding
    out exactly what is spawning it.
    Error message follows:

    Various_Filenames: various_filename.exe - Bad Image

    The application or DLL C:\WINNT\System32\SensAPI.DLL is not a valid
    Windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette

    Thanks in advance.

    This is probably not a virus, but a corrupt system file causing
    the error -- sensapi.dll is the System Event Notification Service.
    Use the system file checker to repair your system:

    Start ... Run ... sfc /scannow
