"Bad Image"

  johnga 09:54 06 Jun 2007

In recent days, I have had a repeated message flash up on my screen.The message is always the same, but a file name at the start varies. The message is: "The application or DLL c:\Windows\system32\fhook.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." This is followed by an OK box.

When restarting the computer, the message can appear up to about thirty times, with a different preceding file name every time. Clicking on OK gets rid of the message. It is clearly a virus of some sort, although so far it appears to be fairly harmless.

Does anyone else have experience of this phenomenon, or know how to get rid of it? Virus programs do not seem to recognise it or deal with it. Thanks
