First I have to say I am a new member! I am so happy to have found this website!
well, Here goes!
I got this error msg on my computer: the application or DLL C:\windows\system32\dxtrans.dll is not a valid window image. Please check this against your installation deskette.

I have also seen: System restore rstrui.exe

I am clueless to what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much,

That file is part of directx. You may want to goto www.microsoft.com/directx and download and install the latest verion.

Also run some virus scans in case something is infecting the files:

Please run two online virus scans:


Then let us know if its working better and what the scans found.

If, in fact, you have Microsoft Games for Windows Live installed and this is not a malware item...I would just do the uninstall/reinstall routine for MGWL. Chances are a key file for that program is damaged and needs to be replaced.
