    Hi everyone

    I need some help with:

    1. Device Manager, which under Hardware tab in System Properties is unable let me opened. When I click Device Manager button, I received the message box as : mmc.exe is not a valid Win32 application. That is one problem, so what can I do to fix it.

    2. Another problem is the C:\Windows\system32\mspaint.exe is not valid Win32 application, it appeared after I selected Start/Programs/Accessories/Paint.

    Anyone has any idea(s) how to fix these two problems above.
    I glad to hear and thank you for your help.

    Start off by updating your virus definitions and running a scan on all files.
