For every program opening on the computer, a message pops up:

Header: program name.exe - Bad Image
Message: The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\meruzato.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

Again, I get this for every program opening. So upon startup of the computer there are 20-30 of them that pop up for every program starting. It also does it opening any program after as well.
I removed some spyware, with the research Ive done I know that it was malware, I belive the malware is removed. How can I fix these problems without reformatting the computer?

I appreciate any help that can be given!
Thank you

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
