Isass.exe - Bad Image

Dell Dimension 9200 desktop computer
August 21, 2009 at 01:01:35
Specs: Windows XP
I turn on my computer and after it shows the black screen with the Windows logo the screen goes black and there is a little window titled Isass.exe Bad Image that says The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system 32\DNSAP1.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check against your installation diskette.

I click okay and it's just a black screen and won't get to my desk top.

I have tried booting in safe, last known good config, etc etc.. I am running a a Dell Dimension 9200. purchased 2006.

would be grateful for any help thanks

"...I have tried booting in safe, last known good config, etc etc..."

... have you tried "safe mode with command prompt" ?

... either select the above then type:

expand C:\WINDOWS\i386\DNSAPI.DL_ c:\windows\system32\DNSAPI.DLL
[press enter]

OR... boot up with XP CD to repair (r) console and type:

expand D:\i386\DNSAPI.DL_ C:\windows\system32\DNSAPI.DLL [press enter]

... D: might be a different CDROM drive letter
