Hi,

I bought Windows Vista Ultimate a few days ago to install on my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop. It works good for a few hours or so, but then there is an error message that reads:

(title): Logonui.exe

V:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.0.6000.16386_none_9ea0ac9ec96e7127\gdiplus.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I have reinstalled it about 3 or 4 times, and this happens every time. Also, I have seen a different erorr message about the Logonui.exe file being corrupted and unreadable. My laptop has 1 gb of RAM... 100 gig hard drive w/ plenty of free space, and a modern video card that is directx 9 compatible. Some one on another forum I posted this on said that the gdiplus.dll file has something to do with my video card? But I have no idea, please help me!! Any replies are greatly appreciated!! Thanks.

Scott

It's a long-shot, but I saw some others were having a similar issue when using an old version of Java. Have you tried updating?

This is what I found on gdiplus.dll

The gdiplus.dll library is required for windows to operate. It is used by windows when communicating with your video card in order to disaply graphics on screen. If gdiplus.dll is unavailable, windows will not function correctly.

gdiplus.dll is flagged as a system process and does not appear to be a security risk. However, removing Microsoft GDI Plus LIbrary may adversly impact your system.
