I began to receive frequent "Bad Image" messages after I installed Windows' lates security updates last night. These read, "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.1433_x-ww_5cf844d2\MSVCR80.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

My ClamWin program won't open, and I can't open any pdf files now. Will anyone help me to resolve this please?

I've uploaded two screenshots of the message.

Thanks, Happyrock.

I've already done what you suggested, but doen't this leave me without the Windows security updates that Microsoft says I should have?

you can use windows update to get any you need after the restore...it sounds like one of the updates screwed things up...it happens sometimes...
what we are trying to do is get your system stable again first...then get the updates that you need...
get them one at a time and reboot between the updates and make sure your system is stable before getting the next one...that way you will know exactly which one is causing the problem....
