Hi Guys,

When i start up my pc, I get the error message msnfilen.exe - bad Image

and in the dialogue box it says

The application or DLL C:\TEMP\jba1.tmp is not a valid Windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

I have absolutely no idea what program is generating this error message, and I have no idea how to resolve the problem.

I did install a Logitech Webcam at the weekend, although it has been working fine, and this error nessage did not start appearing until 24 hours later. I have now unistalled the webcam, and the error message still appears. Can anyone help me please??

Thanks so much.... Susie

Had similar error message simultaneous Norton IS warning. Subsequently could not access internet although connection could be confirmed.

Deleted msnfilen.exe from Windows/prefetch and Windows/system32 and internet access restored.

Note: was required to beboot in safe mode to delete file form system32 as file indicted 'in use'.

Inspecting those files, I could not find author, attributes, etc..

Hope this is of some use to you.

Hi

I found the same file it was caused by a virus W32.kwbot.c.worm.html

Have a read of the site Symantec site below. I did a search for msnfilen.exe in the registry and found it in a key HKLM/software/krypton.

It was causing network and internet connection problems especially through VPN.

Funny thing is Nortons was not picking it up.
