Invalid Window image needs fixing

For some time I have used CyberScrub Privacy Suite for cleaning up my PC's Internet browsing and temporary files trails.

Having not run it for 2-3 weeks I did so today. At the end of the run I got the following message reported by CSPSeraser.exe - Bad Image:

'Application: C:\Windows\System32\SETUPAPI.dll is not a valid Window image. Please check against your installation diskette.'

How do I find out what application this Setup file is associated with so that I can correct it, or do I need to wait until I discover a failed application?

you could run the System File Checker.
Start > Run > and type
sfc /scannow
in the box and click on OK
(there is a space after c and before / )
you will prob need your installation CD

Thanks for the quick response lotvic. I ran sfc / scannow and it called for the CD several times (I guess the drive speed dropped off as it ran through the checking) so I imaging there were quite a few files that needed replacing.

I've yet to re-run CyberScrub Privacy Suite, but hopefully that will no longer throw up any error messages. (I'll post another response if it does.)

Instead of CyberScrub Privacy Suite, try the free glary utilities from click here

Thanks for the tip jimv7, I'll give Glary Utilities a try, especially since I still got the same error when I ran CyberScrub Privacy Suite after running sfc / scannow.
