Bad image warning! Hid.dll?

  Pererin 15:42 23 Jul 2006

Please can you help me guys, my ocmputer has stopped in its tracks several times this week with a warnng reading - Point 32 exe. bad image application or dll it gives the location as C:\Windows\System32\Hid.dll is not a vilaid image . Please check this against your installation diskette. When i looked at the file it was a Microsoft Windows Operating System file. Any ideas, I tried to do a scandisk but it is not in the accessories and the other Chkdsk only works in recovery console of which i do not want to resort to at this moment. Would I be able to insert the windows disk and repair perhaps or just reinstall it. Also tried to defragment last week and was not able to do that either- message read- Defragmentation has been aborted of disk (c) due to inconsistencies that were detected in teh filesystem. Please run Chkdsk or SCANDISK on main disk (c) to reapir and tehn run defrag metnation again. I hope you can help guys thanks in advance as always.Pererin

hid.dll is a library file for the USB interface HID, which processes user (human)interface devices.

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

OPTION 2 - Repair XP by install over the top of existing systm

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.

DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).

4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.

6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.

Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

hi Guys, I still have a problem with a bad image but it seems to come up with other apps as well. I will look into this later. I also have a problem with the defrag on my c drive,here is the message I received today when I tried to defrag the c drive. Defragmentation of MAIN DISK (C) has been aborted due to inconsistencies that were detected in hte filesystem. Please run CHKDSK or SCANDISK on MAIN DISK (C) to repair these inconsistencies, tehn run disk defrag again. Any ideas, on this as well guys?
Oh by the way the computer had been in standby when it would not work and when I tried cliking on an cion on desktop there was no response and there was no file in folder when i went into the start menu all programs and tried. Thanks again in advance, please keep it simple as i am not technically minded. pererin
