Ok, starting Sunday, 9/21 everytime i log into my computer, or open IE7...i get a pop up that reads iexplore.exe-Bad Image as the title of the pop up and C:\Windows\AppPatch\AcLayers.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. as the details.

When I log onto my computer, I get the same message, however, the title is rundll32.exe-Bad Image.

I have tried to restore my computer, but it isn't working. I have uninstalled all Adobe Programs on my computer. Uninstalled the update KB950759. Reset default settings for IE. IE works without add-ons. I performed malware and virus scans, with no threats showing. IE works when I press ok to the pop up, but I just want to find a way to get rid of it. I also have firefox installed, which works fine.

I've talked to about 4 technicians, and nobody has been successful in helping me. I have checked other forums online, but their remedy for the problem, doesn't correct mine. Please help!

spadedaking20,

If you're having issues like that after running any malware removal program, it's quite possible you're not yet fully clean. Since you only have one post here, you were obviously weren't helped here. If you had malware, usually just running one program is not enough to take care of everything - you should have had someone tell you that your system was clean. I suggest you go here and follow the directions. If you'd like to post a hijackthis log, it would be helpful if you included information about what malware program you ran and what issues you were having initially.
