while not very logical, this error message usually only shows when the harddisk is full.

Also:

Bitmaps created using Win98 Imaging components, such as Imaging for Windows (Win98) or IMGEDIT.OCX, create a BMP that cannot be read in Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000 using MSPAINT.EXE or the Visual Basic PictureBox control.

Clever_Bob, sorry that didn't help much as the error has just started happening recently, no changes were made on the platform. Disk space is also around 2GB which is not that low.

I would try converting the image type of 'problem' files. E.g if you are having trouble with a Gif, save it as a bitmap or vice versa. Hopefully this will help you lock down the problem

Clever_Bob thank you for trying to help, you seem to be the only one responding to my question at the moment.

When I said the problem just started happening recently, I meant, everything has been working fine for the past 2 years, there hasn't been any changes to the server, why would the problem suddenly occurs?

We do not use any type of images inside our programs, just those that are icons, on buttons or as labels for examples.
