When I start my computer I get a message that hard drive failure is imminent. Once started I continually get an error message that "C:\windows\system32\msutb.dll is not a valid windows image". All programs are exceedingly slow. The Norton antivirus scan does not disclose any virus. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks.

the harddrive failure could be a warning from SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology), circuitry in the drive that warns you of problems.

the missing msutb.dll could be a result of that part of the drive no longer being read.

msutb.dll is part of the language bar that loads with microsoft office.

I suspect you have a new drive in your future (near future)
