Are you using a 3rd party control/dll or reference?

I had the same exact problem and it drove me nuts for weeks.  I fixed it by installing    OC30.DLL.
This problem was actually be caused by a control that I was using from Visual Components.  It would occur when the form was loaded.

Although the MSDN claims that error 50003 is caused by an invalid gif header, this was the actual source of the problem.  Note that it may not be a Visual Component control that is causing the problem for you, but another one.

Let me know if it works for you.
