Error message when screensaver starts

By MJT07 ·
We are starting to get users calling and stating they are getting this error message:

"Intialization of the dynamic link library C:WINNT\System32\USER32.dll failed. The process is terminating abnormally."

We have found that it's a result of the screensaver coming on. What we don't know is what's causing this error. Has anyone had this problem before or know of how to resolve this?

The users are running WinNT desktops and recently within the past month our corporation has implementedAD as we've made the switch to 2000 on most of our servers and pc's.

Thank you
Matt

This behavior can occur if the User32.dll and Gdi32.dll files are damaged.
Copy the User32.dll and Gdi32.dll files from the Winnt\System32 folder of the parallel installation to the Winnt\System32 folder of the original installation.
