Thanks for any help offered.
I was reading another forum topic about someone that had this 'bad image' error message that continuously popped up, and mine is doing the same. As the post was from 2009, I thought I should ask for help instead of trying the suggestions, plus the admin from geekstogo asked for specifics info.
Anyway; I have Secunia PSI tray ... and i try to open it to see what needs updating, etc. but this 'bad image' error prevents it from opening, and it prevents random things from opening.
I have Malwarebytes, CCleaner, IExplore, and use Microsoft Security Essentials as my anti-virus firewall. Nothing is being picked up.
Today, i spent 5 hours trying to back up my files onto CD's; and when i got to the 5th disk, the back up froze, and wouldn't do anything so i had to jump ship, and shut down my computer. so only 3/4 of the back up was complete. I had wanted to back everything up so that I could follow the Microsoft tutorial on setting a restore point.
I cannot open my IE icon to access the internet, instead we have to use Google Chrome.
I am okay to use the computer, need simple step by step instructions though!
Thanks for any help! HELP!
