exe is not a valid Win32 application

When I map a drive omy network, the new drive mapping comes up with "exe is not a valid Win32 application" when I click on it I get this message. I though I fixed this issue but it's back.
Can I have a suggestion on what to run or do? Also, I do not believe it is virus related but some reg error or system error.

Thanks in advance.

I have seen this.  More times so than not I've seen it related to infections.  Here's a URL that goes into detail about possible causes and resolutions.


This is also a possibility.

I tried some of these fixes, but it still doesn't work. WHen I double-click the mapped drive, I get the error. WHen I select the drive with Explorer, it opens just fine. Any suggestions?

I figured it out. I delete the mapped drives under the registry. THere was a corrupt key there under HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/MountPoints2 .

Thanks for the help and the cool link to the XP fixes.
