What did I do wrong?
On March 12 I posted a plea for help with an annoying problem. The topic title was "yogikipe.dll". I've had more than 100 hits on the topic, but no advice. Zip, nada. Did I post to the wrong forum? Did I incorrectly describe the problem? Did I stump the chumps? Do I smell funny?
Here's the problem: every time I open a program, a "Bad Image" box pops up. When I boot up the computer, I get a series of such boxes. What's happening?
The box is entitled "program_name.exe - Bad Image" and reads: "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\yogikipe.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."
If I close the box, the program loads and runs normally.
I thought the problem was due to a virus attack some time back that was thwarted by Norton. (Maybe the virus made changes to some vital file?) I don't know, but it's driving me nuts. Any suggestions?

I replied to your first post.

I'm sorry that but it seems it may have slipped through the cracks. As you've probably noticed the AII forum receives quite a few post each and every day. Unfortunately, some inevitably will be missed but we do our best to not let that happen.

Have a look at your original post and let's see if we can't get you solved. :thumbsup:
