Yesterday morning, my wife sat down at her desk and saw nothing but a bad image error window for an application. Computer had apparently rebooted overnight and in trying to x/close the window, wouldn't allow this, had to click on OK and that just presented a similar window for a different program - this happened over and over again, many times, apparently for every program that was trying to launch on startup. Searched and searched on another PC for what this might be - was finally able to run AVG which found something (I can't recall what) but indicated it couldn't be repaired/healed. Ended up trying multiple things throughout the day - ran Vipre according to those instructions in Safe Mode, ran SFS Scannow, Malwarebytes, AVG - all multiple times and in Safe Mode. Nothing (at least no threats related to fixing this problem) turned up. Found a post at this website/forum last night that referred to Combofix, but everything I see on this particular tool indicates that it isn't wise to use without expert assistance. This problem is like no other I've experienced, crippling. Help would be very much appreciated! A bit more info - almost every single error indicated the program was "either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support". I believe above this the window showed the program (program.exe) - Bad Image and the path C:\progra~1\movies~1 (example)\datamngr.dll. There was one instance noted that said: IAStorIcon.exe - Application Error Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process ID = 0X514 (1300), Thread ID = 0Xbf4 (3060) Click OK to terminate the application. Click CANCEL to debug the application.
I've been looking around for solutions to this problem that cropped up and I can't really find one that could fix it. Basically, from the moment my pc actually starts up I keep getting Bad image messages with "Application or DLL *** .dll not valid Windows image. Check against installation diskette." It's the same thing for all programs and I'm not sure if it's a common or a simple thing but I don't know of a way to fix it. One of the reasons why I'm not having an easy time fixing it is because I know very little about computers so I'm sure you'll have just as a hard time helping me fix it. I really hope this can be fixed easily because I can't really afford to go and have it fixed by a professional.
Hi! Help! I have a Dell Windows XP computer and recently I keep receiving a DLL bad image error message for just about every program on my computer which says something like "The application or DLL name.DLL is not a valid windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette." I've run AVG and no threats appear. I did a full Malwarebytes scan and although it did remove some malware, it didn't fix the problem. I also tried to do a system restore but that didn't fix it either. I'm thinking about trying to do a clean install reinstallation of Windows but I know this is a long process and I'm wondering if there's a faster, better way to get rid of the infection. Any help will be so very greatly appreciated!! I never know what to do with computers when these things happen. Thanks! Kate
