I am working on a
Gateway MX6025 Notebook
Win XP Home

Not sure about much else.

Apparently she clicked on a popup that stated that her registry had items that needed to be fixed and then it crashed. It wouldn't reboot so she inserted the system recovery CD. I attempted the Gateway System Recovery (with back up first, and then destructive). Each seemed to go well saying that recovery was successful, until restart when it gets about halfway through Setup and says:

Windows XP Home Edition Setup
Installing Devices...
Please wait while Setup detects and installs devices...your screen may flicker for a few seconds.

Error message: rundll32.exe - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\streamci.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

click OK

Error message: RUNDLL
Error loading streamci
%1 is not a valid Win32 application

click OK

error messages again and again

Finally, after 2 hours of rebooting we are to the desktop. YAY.

error message: Remind_XP.exe-Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\MFC42u.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

click OK

Everything seems fine.

This error pops up with every restart.

What should I do now to fix this error?

Thank you so much.

You might want to try to wipe the hard drive with Dban and then retry the Recovery CD.
