Hi, recently my laptop began giving me these errors upon start up or when I open any application. The error states " [name of program].exe - Bad Image, The application of DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\hxloxj.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." It only gives the option of clicking 'ok'. Everything still opens after I click ok and everything appears to be working but it certainly is super annoying. I have ran Malwarebytes antimalware and superanti spyware based on reading other forums, but they haven't fixed it. Also, I'm using windows xp home edition. I would really appreciate any help offered. Thanks in advance.
