Let's try this first...
Start > Run > copy and paste in:
You will need your XP/2000/ME disk. If you don't have it and instead only have a recovery CD, there is a work around. View the following link for a tutorial:
sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.
If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
Let me know if that solves the problem

There are viruses that infect this file, causing this error. Could you please go to the Malware Forum and read the instructions up the top expically the Click Here. Then post a log in the malware forum not here.

Print out the instructions before you get started, if you can, and good luck.

Start < run and type sfc /scannow this needs the Windows XP CD, will give a blue bar, and when the bar goes reboot. I don't think that this will work but, it will make the fix, that Johanna wanted you to do, work.
I still think the best advice was in my first post if you look up.

i do what u tell me by typing in sfc /scannow but then it says checking all files to make sure they are there and when it is done nothing happens and the problem is not fixed. any ideas?

It may be an idea to extract the required file directly from your CD...instructions on how to do so here:
If you are unable to do so.....and sfc /scannow is not working, that indicates to me that whatever was on your system and caused this is still there and running so full malware scans would be advised.
