I get this message "Run a DLL as an App has encountered a problem and needs to close."
Every time I try to look at my Desktop wallpapers in Display Properties can somone give me a clue as to what i need to do to fix this problem.

I am running Windows Xp Proffesional with an AMD 700mhz  processor and GeForce 256 video card I also have 512 gig Ram and two 40gig harddrives.

Thanks for any Help Given.

The very last comment in the thread referenced a program called WindowBlinds. If you're not using WindowBlinds, you might still be using a similar program that is interfering with graphics display by the OS.  The previous proposed solutions might also be applicable in your case.

I have found the solution to my problem. It turns out that i had a virus that was causing that error. The virus was in the Windows>system32>xplugin.dll. After i deleted that DLL file everything worked fine. Thanks for helping.
