    OUTLOOK.EXE - BAD IMAGE

    When I start up Outlook from Office Enterprise I get this message heading
    with the following underneath
    C:\Windows\System32\mscms.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.

    Then when I click on the OK button OUTLOOK starts and everything appears to
    run as normal. It's only affecting OUTLOOK in the Office package.....but it
    also happens when I try and open an Acrobat Web file (pdf) . Then it says
    AUMMsgWndName:AcroRd32.exe - BAD IMAGE and the same dll file error.

    I have tried comparing the mscms.dll file to the file on my Vista
    installation disc using the sf /scannow and it says its the same. This has
    only just started happening in the last few days on an installation thats
    been fine for almost a year.

    My system is Dual Boot Windows XP Pro 32bit and Vista Ultimate 64bit....
    this error is only happening to the Vista 64bit.

    Anyone any ideas plz?
