Hi, I got this pop-up when trying to start up my AVG free 8.0 which renders it unable to be used.

avgui.exe - Bad Image "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.MFC_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_x-ww_3bf8fa05\MFC80U.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Some similar popup also occasionally happens when I start up PowerPoint 2003 even though I can still use PowerPoint.

I realize that I should use sfc/scannow to repair the files but the thing is my comp was initially Windows XP home and I upgraded it to Windows XP Pro by my school's CD. Thus, I am unable to use sfc/scannow as it requests for a windows xp pro service pack 2 CD.

I also chanced upon this website http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/h...combofix#forums and followed the instructions. Is it relevant if I post the log?

Thanks for taking the time to read.

System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2

Hi reedy, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Combofix is a powerful tool, and at this site we suggest that you not run this unless you are being instructed by one of our HJT Team members.

If you don't have SP2 I would highly suggest that you install it. It you are on broadband it won't take too long, if you are on dial up connection you may wish to have Microsoft send you the disc.

Look in you Event Viewer at the times that these errors are showing, the Events are time and date stamped.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

Be sure that you choose System.

The error will appear in the far left column and will appear as a red dot with a white X inside. Each of the columns has a title at the top of them, the column that you want is the Event column. When you see an error follow it to the right across the page to the event column, there will be a set of numbers in there, this is the error code. If you right click on the error code a drop menu will appear, click on Properties, another page will open which will contain a description of the error.

Please post the error codes and descriptions back in this topic.

How large is your hard drive, and how much free space do you have on it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I did try the combofix based on the site I stated earlier even before I started this post and I found that within the folders of the qoobox folder, some files are quarantined and is a VIR file. Is my computer infected by virus since I can't start AVG? (maybe it deactivated it?) I have tried reinstalling but it won't work since it keep stating the bad image. In this case, is reformatting the only choice?
