Bad image error - windows vista

Q: Bad image error - windows vista

Hi there,
Ive been recieving bad image errors for the past two weeks. Everytime try to do ANYTHING on my laptop i get the following message...

"C:\PROGRA~1\Google\GOOGLE~1\GOEC62~1.dll is 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 have done all that was asked in the preparation guide but i could not complete the GMER scan as windows was automatically shut down to stop any damage. When i went to reboot i recieved the following message which i hope is of some help.

Many thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

First off...great site! Just when I thought all hope was lost, I stumbled upon this site. It is my sincerest hope that someone can assist me. I am working a very important project and can not proceed until this issue is resolved.

Here goes...on Wednesday night, my PC froze up while the screen saver was running. I did a reboot on my system and allowed it to do its system checks. Upon logging in as administrator, several windows began to instantly pop up. I can only recall the first one whch says "dwm.exe - Bad Image" etc., etc. About seven or eight similar screens continue to pop up. I tried to reboot the system again, but to no avail, the errors are still there. I can't even open any of my other programs such as MS Word, Excel etc. I noticed there were several other similar threads on this site, but found it difficult to follow along. Also, I did not want to run the risk of doing something incorrectly becasue this could be a unique situation. Can someone assist me in resolving this issue as soon as possible?

Hello everybody,

My computer has fell victim to the bad image error problem, which seems to be a pretty common problems. I've tried numerous different things to get rid of it, but whatever it is will just not go away on my computer. I've tried numerous different antivirus software, I switched from Norton antivirus to Kaspersky Internet Security, used MalwareBytes numerous times, and plenty of other things, but I haven't been able to get rid of it.

It shows up with anything I open. Anything from Google chrome, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Outlook, Firefox, CCleaner, Windows Sniping Tool, to probably anything else you can think of. It also show up many times at start up where it says setup.exe or startup.exe. Essentially, whatever program you can think of, it's likely causing this to show up. I've tried targeting specific things or uninstalling specific things, but so far this has not worked.

So I come to you guys here hoping for some sort of solution to this because everything I've tried so far hasn't worked.
I recently tried what is outlined in this old thread: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/996193-exe-bad-image-error-windows.html

As you can see from the post it instructs you to run something with registry editor, but that didn't work so then I downloaded HijackThis and did what the guy in that post instructed. When looking for this entry from HijackThis found:

I've been tolerating with this error for the past 2 months or so and have finally decided to try and get it fixed. Every time I open a program for example Windows Live Messenger, I'll get a pop up error saying: "C:\Windows\system32\pnrpnsp.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error." This happens with most programs that I try to open. Could someone help me fix this please?

Thanks in advance.~

It looks as though you have 2 antivirus programs running.
Please select one and uninstall the other.
Daemon tools can also cause these issues.

So awhile ago I posted a thread about a bad image error, and a moderator helped me clear things up. It was all good until probably 2 months ago, and I've put up with it until now.

"C:\Windows\system32\pnrpnsp.dll is 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," error appeared when I attempted to to open Windows Live Messenger. A similar error also appears when I try to open League of Legends. It also occurs every time I try to stream a live video from youtube, or some other sites.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Im getting this image on my dads laptop and I cant load anything it says that every time I click on a program and I even tried plugging in a jump drive with the version.dll library on it so I could put the new version of that file on his pc but it wont even let me open anything on jump drive without saying same message and I tried doing this in safe mode too and same thing happens. Any ideas?
Also I did try system restore point from like may and one from the day before this all started happening on his computer and it didnt fix it either.

I had a friend suggest i would recommend buying a second hard drive, installing the OS on that fresh, then mount the original drive and copy files off it
if you don't care about the files, just format and be done with it but I was hoping it would be an easier then that. Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.

Hello, I have recently developed a problem. Every time I go to open up an application, I get a bad image error saying the application or DLL is not a valid Windows image and to check it against my installation diskette. I have seen multiple problems like this on the forums here, but the solutions look pretty specific to each problem (sorry if I'm wrong about that).

Anyway, I have done virus scans with AVG Free, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials, all of which have found something. I have cleaned up all of these problems, but I'm still getting the bad image errors. The weird thing is when I go to open up an application, for example Google Chrome, I get the bad image error, I click "OK", and Chrome goes ahead and opens like nothing ever happened. This is the same deal with all of my other applications.

I have posted my HijackThis log below (since it appears to be mandatory for solving the problem), and thank you to anyone who can help!

A:"Bad image" / "not a valid Windows image" error

Update: fixed!

I appreciate that y'all help folks for free on here, but nonetheless got a little bit impatient looking at a possible week's waiting time, messed around a bit and what I did ended up fixing it. Hopefully sharing this info here may help others with this same issue.

After running multiple antivirus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware scans that still didn't fix it, what ended up working was running sfc\ scannow to scan and repair system files and deleting the dll file mentioned in the error message (and that folks here said looked like a malware / spyware generated dll rather than an authentic file), mswnlwkl.dll. I no longer get the error and now Firefox works just fine again.

My best guess was that it wasn't a malware that was generating the error messages, but rather one of the spyware or antivirus programs I used deleted a virus that had changed some information somewhere in the registry or a DLL file (or whatever), and that was calling on this rogue DLL file that Windows couldn't recognize. Basically a virus was removed but left behind traces that screwed with some of the system files.

"LogonUI.exe - Bad Image

C:\Windows\system32\xmllite.dll is 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 software vendor for support."

I click okay, and it's just a black/blank screen after that. I mean, I can see the cursor, but that's it. And it doesn't do anything.

I WANT TO MAKE IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR THAT I CANNOT GET TO MY DESKTOP. I am presently using a friend's computer. My computer cannot get to the desktop. Once the error message shows up, and you click "okay" that's it. It does nothing else.

I can't get into safe mode. Period. The only way I can get to the command prompt is through the F8>Repair Your Computer>Command Prompt way. And when I try to do the "sfc/scannow" thing, it tells me that I can't do it because I have a pending system repair. Most likely that means that it can't do the scan now function while in the "Repair Your Computer" mode.

Hello,

I hope all is well in your world.

I've been infested with Bad Image errors on EVERY program I open manually, or that opens during start up.

The familiar error reads, ""C:\Windows\system32\ajpjDhglj.DLL is 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 software vendow for support."

[the "xxxxx".DLL varies with every program, too numerous to note, but the rest of the error is the same with everything I open; in the ajpjDhglj.DLL instance, the program is SendSpace]

I have Norton 360 running (although McAfee was the program running when the problem began; I've since uninstalled it), and I've used Norton's Eraser Tool and Bootable Recovery Tool, AVG's and Sophos' rootkit cleaners, and AVS' registry cleaner to no avail. I did a scan with PC Cleaner, but I did not register in order to fix the 2,000+ questionable items it found even after the AVS scan and fixes.

I have downloaded the TSG files as agreed.

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this plague. Everything else seems to be working fine (although I have no idea if these errors represent a vulnerability beyond Norton's reach).

Hello all.

I'm posting for a friend who is having a problem installing Windows Vista 5308 onto his eMachines T3092. First, here are his specs:
1.3 gHz AMD Athlon 3000+
nForce 2 Motherboard
1024 megs of RAM (upgraded from 512)
GeForce4 MX Integrated Graphics (he told me that he also had tried using an AGP GeForce2 MX card)

A:how to replace my vista system image with a windows seven system image

Hi bigboi1972. Well this should be fairly straight forward. (I stress the should).

Firstly, a system image is out (and your definition is correct by the way thats exactly what a system image is). That drive is waaay too small to make a system image of your C drive.

However if you get some more storage, a system image can be made from Backup and restore centre in Windows 7.

So to remerging it with your drive. Can you please post a screenshot of your Disk Management Screen? go start right click computer, and click manage, then go to Disk Management. that will help to see whether what you want to do will be possible using Windows own inbuilt tools or whether you need a 3rd party app

I'm having major problems with getting the game Bioshock to work. Ive called the company, posted questions on a different tech support site, and STILL cannot get this to work properly! I would have given up..except I KNOW this problem is fixable! Help!
When I try to load the game, I get the following error message

"Bioshock.exe - Bad Image
C:\Windows\system32\d3dx9_33.dll is 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".

Things Ive tried so far...Installing the game in safe mode, copying the game to my hard drive before installation, downloading drivers and patches for directx and vista. Finally, returning the game for a new copy to make sure it wasn't the game itself. I'm very much at a loss for what to do next. If anyone can help I would be eternally grateful! I've attached my computer's directX diagnostic....Thanks for your help!

Hey guys,

I was using Windows Vista for about a year and decided to delete the OS from my laptop and load XP back on... The removal went smooth mush to my surprise. Now that I have successfully loaded Windows XP onto the laptop I am trying to utilize the back up images I left from Vista on an external hard drive. I am unable to do so. Any help with this process would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows Image Backup with Vista

Well...you must use the same software to restore a backup...as was used to compile it.

I have my doubts about restoring any system backup to an external drive, but I've never tried it (because it did not make any sense to me and I have plenty of hard drives, no need for an external which is slower than a drive connected directly to the motherboard).

I've not ever used Vista (installed it briefly just to see if the disk worked).

Hi guys. I just got my new computer a few weeks ago, and it came with Windows Vista, instead of Windows XP. After moving all my programs and files from my old computer to my new one, I wanted to scan an image into my computer using HP Director, but it said that the HP Image Zone was not compatible with my computer. Are there any upgrades I can download to fix this, or will I have to find another scanning program? I hope I've posted this in the right thread (since I'm a complete newbie here-I usually just get my Dad to help fix my computer).

Hey, everyone.
Hopefully, I'm posting this in the right spot. I'm new to this forum.
Actually, I'm new to asking for tech advice on any forum.
Normally I scour the internet for any problem I'm having, I find someone else who had it, and follow the steps to fix it. Unfortunately, this time, I haven't been able to find a solution.

Fair warning: My description of the problem may go all over the map.

Here is my Operating System information as reported by Iobit System Information:

OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Home
OS Version: 10.0.10586

Microsoft DirectX Version: Direct X 11
OpenGL Version: 10.0.10586.0 _th2_release.151029-1700)

The initial problem I want to bring up is that when my computer restarts to apply the Windows update it tells me that it failed and reverts back. It does this every time.

And when I try to install the new update from Windows Update I get this message:
There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:

I had to wipe and reinstall my system over the weekend, and I had created a Windows Vista image a few weeks back. I decided to run the Windows 7 RC 1 - 64 bit on my system. It's installed perfectly and it's running really well.

However, I want to restore my docs and pictures from my 'Vista backup image', but the Windows 7 restore tool doesn't see the image file. It's on my external hard drive. It won't let me browse to that folder to select the image, which is a VHD image btw.

Does anyone know how I can access that image and restore files from it? Even mounting it would be fine.

Have you read Windows 7 Help & Support regarding backups?
Open Backup & Restore and click the blue (?) near the upper right.

Have you tried to simply browse to your backup file and double click it to see if it will open a backup and restore window? How about right click and "open with" (if available) and browse to windows backup & restore?

Can't give specific's as i've never used it, but it does say that you should be able to restore files from vista within 7.

good luck.

Hello all!

I've a 64 bit version of Vista as an image format on my hard drive but I don't have a disc to burn it onto, as well as given the sensitivity of the software involved a bad burn could cause me quite a few headaches.

Was wondering if anybody knew of a way I could install the operating system directly from the image or if it's possible to boot the file up from an external drive?

I appreciate the responses.

Edit: Wasn't sure if this was the correct section, as I'm not sure if this pertains to the operating system or software/hardware in question. Apologies if this is the wrong section.

A:created system image in Vista now have windows 7. how can i use backup

Hello fishtag Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Were you running the Business or Ultimate edition of Vista previously or use a 3rd party imaging software to create the image with? As far as restoring any full image a second hard drive available would be one option for a 3rd party program while 7 will not be able to restore an image created by the previous version.

If you used a 3rd party program and have that installed presently on 7 the program may have the option for mounting the image as a virtual drive where you can easily access the files. The feature allows the user to add or remove files from any image created rather then creating a totally new one just to see more files added. As for more programs then a totally new image would be required.

If you had created the image with the backup option in the Vista Business or Ultimate edition a fast temp install of Vista to a second drive would allow the image to be restore there long enough to retrieve the files you want to keep and use on 7. Here I have a second OS drive here used to test image integrity as well as retrieve files when not running a beta like the next version of Windows to come there. It also can serve as a second drive to store system images on as well.

One guide for gaining access to a full image backup made with Vista suggests using the MS Virtual PC 2007. Use Virtual PC 2007 to access a Complete PC Backup image in Vista | TechRepublic

I have tried everything for several months to fix my computer, including removing Malware etc. Apparently there is something wrong with the XP operating system. I do have the disks. Is there a way to reinstall without loosing my data, jpegs (I backed up most but there are over 3,000 where the trail is too long and they won't move over to my WD external). What about my Word Docs, Excel, and Scans? Can I stick this disk in and use it to "Repair" without loosing my Data?

I need specific instructions for fixing this problem, including which disk I need to use. I think it's the "Orange" one labeled "Operating System" already installed on your computer Reinstallation DVD, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with update rollup 2 (Dell) I have a Dimension E310.

I also have a blue DVD titled "Drivers and Utilities" (already installed) and "Application" (Already installed). Do I need to do anything with these. I am typing on my Netbook but main computer has been unusable.

A:Windows XP DLL Bad Image error

You might consider booting with a Linux Live CD, to see if you can still read the drive. If so, you can copy what you want, onto an external drive and work on fixing the crippled drive afterwards.If you have your files safe, you can test your OS disks without worrying.You could then do a complete reinstall, instead of a repair, as it'sdifficult to know what would be left, after a repair. Might work, might not.Keeping a Linux disk handy enables you to boot,without interference from Windows.It's a 700MB download of the ISO, which you need to burn to a CD.(Ubuntu is a popular distribution, which works well and also Linux Mint 7.).Read all the info first, if you're dubious. http://www.linuxmint.com/download.phpI would opt for a reinstall, rather than a 'fix'.Note:LOFIKETO.DLL (not a recommendation for the program, just info.).http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X2943661224...FIKETO.DLL.htmlUseful troubleshooting link for your system:http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/syst...t.htm#wp1124478
