    Did that
    COPY ATMFD.DLL from C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache folder to C:\WINDOWS\system32\
    went to find this but have no dllcache folder so did a search for the file - only to find it with the file I had just renamed. Looked in the event log and "File replacement was attempted on the protected system file c:\windows\system32\atmfd.dll. This file was restored to the original version to maintain system stability. The file version of the system file is 5.1.2.226."

    Reboot
    Did this and got the error as before - failed to load. I give in, if and when I get an error message that says something has stopped working I'm going to leave it as it's taking up far too much time to sort.

    Thanks to everybody who has tried to help.

    must be to do with that syscrypt service in services as there was another thread to do with usb devices where you had to stop and restart the above service ( cant remember if that was the exact name of the service )

    But if the system is going to replace the file with the same file that I'm trying to replace it with, then won't I get the same error, even if I stop the whatever service.

    For more info link shows other file name

    I recently reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Win XP Pro and updated to SP3. I believe when I updated to SP3 is when I started seeing this exact same event viewer application pop up message. As I believe you experienced, I also hardly ever see the popup as it is too quick. But it clearly shows in event viewer as happening every time I boot to XP.

    If you click the "for more information.." link within the event properties, you'll see more info. In my case, it states the file name is ntdll.dll and not ATMFD.dll any more. Just curious if you have the same file name in the more info link. I also would like to stop the app pop message. I'm considering reformatting but would rather not as everything else seems to be working fine.

    Nvidia video driver appears to be cause for me

    To the OP,

    I think I just solved my issue. Here are the links that solved it. I googled "Application popup: : \SystemRoot\System32\ATMFD.DLL failed to load" and I used the optional google translated link

    http://www.51nb.com/forum/tid751535,1

    http://translate.google.com/translat...6newwindow%3D1

    In my case, this problem happened on a T61 Thinkpad with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M display adapter and as stated I recently reformatted due to a new hard drive. I did grab all the latest drivers for my new hd and just now I reverted to the previous Nvidia video driver and upon rebooting and checking out event viewer, the app pop up message appears to be gone. The video drivers I had and reverted back to match the link's drivers. I'll update this thread if I get the message again but this appears to be the resolution for me. Hope that helps.

    Many thanks for this, I haven't followed the link yet but wll do so and have a go. I hadn't reformatted the drive but I may have accepted an update for the video driver. I'll also have a look at the more info dialogue. Though from memory that only stated the same thing as the main statement.
