I have a Dell Inspiron Notebook w/Windows XP. When I boot up, I get these error messages:
c:\windows\system32\syntpfcs.dll is not a valid windows image, same with aoldiag\tb.dll, & several others. I can't get on the internet at all. I am connected by a wireless card, so I don't think aol even comes into play. I have had problems with malware, but I think I got rid of everything. I posted my HJT log on the malware section, but I think they are overwhelmed, and haven't had time to respond. The only other thing that might caused it, is that I let the battery run down completely. Help!

ok that one worked.

I was very diligent in checking for replies in the other forum. I finally gave up, and wrote a message that I realized that the other problems were greater than mine. But this is on another computer.

I did as you asked, and it gave me an error message that said windows could not find the file. I have the XP disk in the drive.

If you think this is a malware problem, I don't mind going back to the other forum. I just started thinking maybe that was not the problem.

I just realized there is a space after sfc. It is running now.

The scan just completed. I re-booted, & I got the same messages. This time, a zonealarm message was included.
