mshta.exe error on my computer.

hi experts,

 all of a sudden I started getting this error on my system.

mshta.exe - bad image
C:\windows\syswow64\d3d10warp.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I got differing views looking around on this. I think the first thing you need to do is scan thoroughly for viruses and malware.

After that, open cmd.exe and run SFC /SCANNOW to correct system files. Allow to complete and restart the computer.  See if the error comes back.

You could try restoring to an earlier time if the problem just started happening. Although not sure to fix it, but it's worth the few minutes it takes. Try from safe mode with command prompt: rstrui.exe to restore.

I went looking on my Windows 7 machine and I have mshta.exe on my Windows 7 machine and is a Microsoft program for dealing with HTM / HTML files.

I also have D3D10warp.dll files in various places including SYSWOW64.

So either a virus has gotten to these files or they have been otherwise corrupted.

So try the 2 ideas in my above post.
