That root file seems to be the cause of all the Bad Image windows I get whenever I start my laptop. There are about a hundred .exe files that all say Bad Image and then say something about the file not being designed for windows or has an error. I suspect it has an error caused by a virus or worse. Can anyone give me some guidance as to how to fix this?

I already tried the RecoveryDisc method by downloading Vista Recovery Disk ISO and that didn't take away the problem. It helped which means I took care of some of the issue, but do I have to do a complete system restore? I am in the process of doing a file back up now and plan on trying that next. If anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to let me know. Thanks guys.

here is a list of the .exe files that come up as having errors:

AtBroker.exe
userinit.exe
dwm.exe
explorer.exe
VongoTray.exe
GrooveMonitor.exe
hpwuSchd2.exe
reader_sl.exe
