Hello everyone. I have recently been getting the following warning/error report:

The application or DLL: c\windows\system32\sti.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

I get similar warning/error reports for avgtray.exe (MSVFW32.dll) and DoScan.exe (VDMBG.DLL)

I am using windows XP Pro (I cannot open System Application from Control Pannel to identify Service Pack or build number).

I have already attempted to use RegCure and Perfect Optimizer to address the situation with no luck.

Any Ideas??

Thank you,

Glen Schultz

They're all valid .dll's
apdproxy.exe is part of Adobe Photoshop
sti.dll is a MS file it stands for Still Image Architecture
