This error is due to a problem with yahoo messenger. re-install it and that should take care of the problem.

I had a problem with yahoo messenger and the tech@ rogers told me to remove it from my add&remove program's,IT WOULDN'T REMOVE IT'S SELF!so they told me to remove all of Roger's program's,& they would send me out a new improved CD,and to download all the program again.I tried to download the cd,but it wouldn't take? I had the p.c into Future shop in Sept. when I was having all of these problem's & they said there was nothing wrong with my P.C, that some people couldn't run yahoo messenger and it's not my P.C.But if you think it will help I will try again to download the CD.The problem I had with messenger was as soon as i down loaded in the very beginning it changed all of my display setting's ,and when someone would contact me the display setting would go,and everything went fuzzy,that's why I took it in to the shop, just in case there was a problem with my P.C. But it came out with a clean bill of health.I was wondering has anybody else had a problem with yahoo messenger?
Thank's again Pam S

I tried looking up what yimage.dll does but couldn't come up with anything other then it appears that it is part of Yahoo messenger.

Do you use Yahoo messenger?

I saw you posted you were having trouble uninstalling messenger and a tech was going to send you a CD. Was this for Yahoo messenger?

Since this is happening when you start up windows, click start - click run - type in MSCONFIG - this will bring up system configuration utility. Click on the start up tab and uncheck anything that has to do with Yahoo. Then click on apply and then close and restart your computer.

This should atleast get rid of the error message when booting up.

These are for Yahoo Messenger as stated previously. Try uninstelling it rather than just removing it from the startup. Also, if you have the Yahoo toolbar, remove it as well. Afterwards, reboot and see if the problem is gone. If it is, you can now reinstall them (or not).

Another option may be to insert a Password and allow the system to run for a short amount of time once you reach the password entry screen. I've found on a lot of XP machines that they need a break on loading to properly install all the files.

It seems as if the loading is working faster than the HDD can be read and you get all sorts of error messages on different computers at the opening of Windows so if you allow them a short break of around 30 seconds the problem has always rectified itself from previous experience.

But as I've never actually used a Sony VAIO you may need to tinker with the delay to see if things load properly a good idea is to wait for the HDD LED activity to go out and then press enter after typing in the password.
