Hi all
A similar question to one asked recently:

I have just started to get the following message when trying to open Firefox.

Firefox.Exe - Bad image
The application or DLL C:\\program files\java\jre1.5.0_02\bin\jpishare.dll
is not a valid windows image.
Please check this against your installation diskette.

Below is an "OK" box.
FF does eventually open, after clicking "OK".

Just prior to this I had upgraded ZA to version 5.5.094 without going to the ZA users' forum first - and had to uninstall because of impossibly slow browsing and crashes. There was then a reported error in IE favourites (hardly ever go there) and that was solved by running chkdsk.
The FF error appeared after that, and seems to be related to the java runtime environment.
If I go to the Sun java site, it causes both FF and IE to close, so I cannot download any update.
I have tried system restore, clearing out errors with the advanced system optimiser, uninstalling and reinstalling FF.

Help! Any ideas as to where to go next would be very welcome!

Hi all
Sorted! Browsing to the bad file showed it to be empty, so a friend emailed me the missing file, and I copied it over the empty one - and hey presto - all OK now. :thumbsup:

Thanks for listening!

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
