Re: Dll file replacement?

I found the Dell CD. Unsure if this is a bootable disk or not but when it begins I get a setup. Looked at all DLL files on CD and no file found. So I thought this was a junk file. Thanks for the Google idea. When I searched nothing was found. So I went into

c:\windows\system32
and deleted to recycle bin
nilivuto.dll
It was created on 3/29/11 at 10:09 am and was 20 bytes. The file was all in caps and other DLL files were in small letters and much larger.
When I launch an application all is fine and I don't get that message.
We have no idea how this file got there but my best guess is that perhaps a virus was trying to install and could not because of software protection. I hope this problem is resolved. But the true test will be when I reboot. Need to do some computer work for the next 2 days so hopefully I don't need to reboot before then.

and file name was in all caps and was 20 bytes.

Ann,

When I encounter a situation like this, I google the filename, as well as
post a query to the list. Google often comes through. So does the list, but
just in case it's worth a search.

Hi today I got this message:
c:\windows\system32\nilivuto.dll
is not a valid windows image check installation diskette which I cannot
find.
I looked at this file and the date is today.   Somehow this file got
corrupted.
Is there a way that I can restore this file only?  If so how?
Thanks,
Ann
