Illegal System DLL Relocation

By Steffi28 ·
Everytime I'm starting windows up lately I'm getting the error Illegal System DLL Relocation, It says....

The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL c:\Windows\system32\HHCTRL.ocx occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs.

Now I have absolutely no idea what this means Im using Windows XP Media Centre edition, and to be honest I cant think of anything I've done to make this start to occur I located the file and it says its type is activeX control. The laptp im using is not quite two months old so obviously ive been transferring data from my old laptop, ive never had this error before though it says this file has been there since 21 jan, but ive only started getting the error about a week ago, it doesnt cause any problems, that ive noticed, but just comes up everytime i start windows.

If anyone can tell me at least why it comes up or what to do to get rid of it id be very greatful :)

Thanks

Steffi if that doesn't cure your little problem you can follow M$ recommendation and download a trial version of Iolo's System Mechanic from here

Don't bother with the Pro version as its only difference is that it has an AV Product in it but this is a recommended download for every Windows user according to the Windows Users Group.

Edited to add Steffi Do Not run the remove Duplicate Files option here as it will remove files with the same name from different directories and cause the system never to boot again till you reload it. Everything else is safe to do though just don't use that option.
