Is your AV and antispyware up to date? Have you run spyware scans etc?

Find and re name PSAP.DLL to PSAPIOLD.DLL
and re boot.

BT and some NTL or Blueyonder broadband users have experienced error message like "SmartBridge Alerts:-Alert BT Help Notifier.exe (or MotiveSB.exe for NTL or IST for Blueyonder) Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL"

This relates to the BT ( NTL, Blueyonder) desktop helper. The simplest way to deal with it is to uninstall it if you do not use it or take it out of your start up list. The program name will be something like Motive Communications or Motive SB.

Alternatively, 1. Navigate to the installation location for SmartBridge via My Computer (\Program Files\Alert BT Help Notifier.exe (or Motive SBexe. for NTL or IST\SmartBridge for Blueyonder)
2. Find PSAPI.DLL and rename it to something like PSAPIOLD.DLL
3. Reboot the system

The program will find the new PSAPI.DLL in the \Windows\System32 directory and function normally.

Or, if you have Spybot Search and Destroy use their start up control tool.

Actually I think it's a Typhoon

"The plane looks like an F16"

Isn't it a Typhoon-Eurofighter?

Thanks for the interpretation, I was initially reluctand to click on the links.

Arthur and Ptolemy, you're correct - apologies! I'm much better on software than I am on military aircraft!

Fruit Bat /\0/\ and anskyber, i tried you're suggestion to rename the .dll file. Unfortunately it didn't work, i have since followed brundle and anskyber's post and disabled BT Help Notifier from the start up menu; problem solved.
I can assure everyone that the plane on my desktop is definately a Eurofighter Typhoon.

Thanks again.
