Tried to open Movie Maker for the first time on this PC (WinXp SP2) but always comes up with following message.

C:\Program Files |Movie Maker\WMVCore.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

Anyone explain what to do next?

Thanks Sethhaniel tried your suggestion, but didn`t fix it.

The full message window is titled
"moviemk.exe Bad Image"

Message: The application or DLL C:\Program Files |Movie Maker\WMVCore.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

Looked in the program files and movie maker\WMVCore is there. but there dosen`t seem to be a moviemk.exe file?

moviemk.exe is the start prog in the C:\Program Files\Movie Maker

do you have extension of common hidden it could just show up as moviemk with an icon of reel of film 3,472KB in size

Yes the real of film icon is there and titled moviemk, however mine is only 3.39Mb
