I get a pop-up error everytime windows starts, it says 'Error loading C\WINDOWS\image.dll.' I also noticed that every time i restart my computer even if it is Shut down properly Checkdisk will run.
The Disk Check gets through 'Checking the files' but on 'Checking the indexes' it says insuffiecient disk space.
I have a virus scanner Avast Antivirus and it tells me that my sysupd.dll is infected.

I have Windows XP. Please help, if you need more info let me know.

Thanks in advance

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
log here.

Hey,

This look to be a very simple fix. I don't believe it is Adware/Spyware/Virus. I believe all you really need to do is flash your BIOS (download an upgrade for the BIOS and "flash" it). If you will give me make and model, I will find you a link for the BIOS upgrade and post it here. I've had a customer with this problem before, and that fixed that issue. Also, if you try letting the chkdsk run in Safe Mode and finish, they may also fix the issue. Try these things, and get back to me on make and model.
