    I am having a lot of trouble with bad image messages for all the programs I use:-

    The application or dll C:\Windows\System32\WIKI.DLL is not a valid Windows image.

    I understand this to be malware and have tried various programs to scan the system but all report no threats.

    I have looked in System 32 for WIKI.DLL and find it is 20bytes, an Application extension file and was created 28th November, which is roughly when all my problems started!

    I have looked at another computer's System32 for WIKI.DLL and found that there isn't one.

    I am wondering therefore if I can just remove my WIKI.DLL without doing anything disastrous to my computer?

    If you believe your computer is infected, please click on Report and kindly ask to be moved to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum. Be sure to provide the appropriate reports in that forum after reading THIS. From there, be patient. You should get an answer within the next 48 hours. Those guys are really busy!

    Before this one gets taken over, may I just sugfgest running a search for exe files created on that date. If you can find the one that relates to the .dll and delete it, you might help the situation but six weeks is a long time to store up malware - plenty of breeding time.
