I had the same issue as Scottedge...after upgrading my IE7, i came up with the same error message:

The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL.

Just wanted to write a post regarding this issue.

...i came up with the same error message...

...you get that message from what?...AutoHotkey?...when running any script?...or when?...I'd have to re-read this thread, but I think the solution was to rename (or delete, but be careful) the psapi.dll file in the AutoHotkey install folder (default C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey) to something else, for example psapi.dll.disabled...for some reason this file was included in old versions of AutoHotkey, but possibly isn't needed any more...I dunno, I think that's what I read somewhere...but hey, if you rename it & it fixes the problem, great, if not, rename back...no harm done...just re-read, the solution is delete...so what's the issue?...

I had the same issue as Scottedge...

...wait had...so you fixed it?...or you really mean have...so you still need a solution?

psapi.dll is used for the progress command on pre-XP (and pre-2000, i think) OSs.

Oh my! :shock: Do not attempt to delete any DLL file from System32 again.

I have WinXP and I too have the GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL. upon start up. It did not appear to affect anything until a month later, now some web pages log off without prompt.

I too get the smartbridge error message everytime I start my computer, a Dell running Win XP. I click OK on the error message, and everything seems to run fine. A search of my drives brought zero matches to Autohotkey. I searched for psapi.dll and got 10 matches. 2 in I386, 2 in system 32, 4 in program files and 2 in service packs. My trouble started about the time I went from dial up to DSL.

Any help?

I use sbc, and I found the smartbridge folder by going to program files, SBCLightSpeed Self Support Tool, Smartbridge File Folder. Inside the Smartbridge folder, you'll find PSAPI.DLL Rename it as mentioned in a previous post, then reboot. You can also find smartbridge by doing a search.
Hope this helps.

I found the easiest and fastest way to fix this error is: on MS's website
Redownload IE7.With out ubinstalling it.Before the DL starts you. Itwill sscan your installed version of IE7 and download and install.After the reboot no more error inside of IE. Have never had this error on system boot but this method does work inside of IE7.
An easy- no hassle fix
