Bad Image error message & missing shell.exe

This is Windows XP Professional SP2 running on Dell Dimension 5150. It is patched with all recent windows updates and AVG installed as security suite. It is just a month old system. Whenever I start the computer I use to get error message saying:

?program name.exe
The application or DLL C:\windows\system32\***.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check against your installation diskettes?


The same error message appears every time when I start any program. But after clicking on OK, the programs works fine and normal like nothing happened. Can anyone please tell me what is this error related and how can I stop it from appearing again and again on my screen?

Thanks for your helps.

Re: Bad Image error message & missing shell.exe

It is good to hear that there is no problem in your programs or systems functionality because of this error message. However i will suggest you to try repairing your windows. As the error is related to the DLL files, these are system files and may cause harm in future.

Alternatively you can download Autoruns app, to help you disable the last vestiges of some spyware your system has now removed.AutoRuns for Windows v8.61: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sys.../Autoruns.mspx
