How do I fix this error?

"The application or DLL C:\WINDOW\system32\lofiketo.dll is not a valid Window image. Please check this against your installation diskette"?

Is this fixable without reformatting my hard drive?

I tried going back to the furthest restore point, but no success. My initial problem was that I was out of disk space, but I was able to move or delete files so this is my only remaining issue.

I have a Dell Dimension E310, and orange Disk "Operating System", Blue Disk "Applications ("for reinstalling Dell systems software") and Blue Disk "Drivers and Utilities". All are dated 2004 or 2005.

I would like to fix without reformatting and loosing files.

Thanks!

More likely than not you have a rootkit infection
It will take time

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive (If you did not use the "Direct Download" mirror).
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.

----------------------------------

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High

Also try: right-click on rootrepeal.exe and rename it to tatertot.scr

Unfortunately I am having a problem getting to this file from the infected computer. Should I be able to get to this program using Mozilla Firefox? Using the Restore Point may have taken my computer to a point where the internet is not working. I am typing on my Netbook (secondary computer), not my main computer that hasn't worked in months.

Can you provide a URL?

"not a valid Window image" is a strong indication of a rootkit infection, which is the direction I'm going

Ok, I see this now. I will log in from the infected computer (hopefully) in the next day and report back.
