I am having trouble with one of my laptops. Its a Dell inspiron 8600. I have windows XP and outlook 2003.
When opening outlook, I click on an email and an error message appears, "outlook.exe - bad image The application or DLL :\WINDOWS\system32\mshtml.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." I click OK and the reading pane goes blank.
I have tried reinstalling Outlook, I reinstalled office. I have run Spybot S&D, malwarebytes, combofix and didnt catch anything.
Internet Explorer will also not display any webpages. Doesnt give any error, page seems to load, but page is blank? I am however able to update windows?!
I have 10 svchost.exe running in the task manager! Am more than certain at least one of these is not legit.
I am running out of ideas, any help will be greatly appreciated. I am fairly computer literate, so any logs I need to post, just let me know.
