This message appears immediately after start up and reappears each time I
click OK or X out the message. I just got a brand new computer and did a
fresh install of XP Pro.

Is it possible to copy this file over from a different computer?

msi.dll is a Windows\system32 file, but not a graphics file which is what
your PC is trying to open. MSI.dll is a dynamic link library file. One of
your
apps is trying to open it as a graphic at boot time. The best way to
eliminate
this is to boot clean. Go to:
Start>Run>type MSCONFIG>and click OK
Click the Startup tab and uncheck/disable everything except your anti-virus
program>click Apply and Close>Reboot.
The problem should now be gone. Disabling apps from boot will run you
a cleaner machine and use less system resources. It will NOT delete anything
from your PC.

For anyone stumbling across this page who does not notice the immediately obvious, pls be aware the previous replier should be ignored.
A "valid windows image" is not in the slightest way defined as a graphics file.
