Hey Guys,

I'll cut right to the chase -
Last week Norton antivirus 360 alerted me a program called "n.exn" was attempting to access my computer, but that it was blocked by Norton. Right after that notification the following error pops up everytime I do ANYTHING in windows (open a new internet tab, open AIM, open a folder etc...."
here is the error message:

"The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\pelawohi.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette"

I ran a registry cleaner (Advanced SystemCare 3) and also scanned my computer with Norton, everything was supposedly fixed and no virus was found. I ran SFC \ Scannow and it did not ask me to replace any files (I dont have an XP CD, just a partition on my HD).

Here are the computer specs (Lenovo thinkpad T60, Windows XP professional SP3)

I have searched for past few days but cannot find this exact error anywhere, can anyone help?
