I recently started getting repetitive Bad image errors dealing with winrnr.dll. The message says that it is not the same version as the version of windows that I have. I have tried the sfc command, but it says that it is unable to fix the problem. Is there any way to replace this file? I really would like to avoid backing up more files and doing a complete reinstall of vista. thanks

What is the exact error message that you get with SFC.EXE?
Here's a link on how to get the information from the log files. Copy and paste the relevant sections (not the entire log) into your next post so we can have a look at it.

For anyone coming upon this thread wondering about CBS.log (the file produced after SFC /scannow finishes looking for corrupt system files):

The very simplest way to view CBS.log without messing it up is to log into your system as an administrator and copy CBS.log to your desktop, and then open it. This very simple fix courtesy of this VistaHeads thread. Can you believe this? It's true; I've done it.

Microsoft also provides an article describing how to pull useful info out of CBS.log without copying it, and what that information means. This includes the advice given in this thread, where you do
findstr /C:"[SR] Cannot repair member file" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt
at the command line. The problem is that what this command does is find strings in CBS.log starting with that phrase in quotes, and then redirect these strings into another file called sfcdetails.txt (it will create the file if it doesn't exist yet), inside the working directory--meaning whatever directory you are in within the command prompt window when you execute the command. If your command prompt starts with
C:\Windows\System32
at the beginning of the line before the cursor, then that is your working directory, and where sfcdetails.txt will be stored if it isn't there already. Most people giving this advice, and Microsoft's article, neglect to mention this. (Also, in my case--on the contrary to Microsoft's article--sfcdetails.txt does not already exist on my C: drive, even though I've run SFC at least a few times.)

CBS.log's security properties are fairly incomprehensible to me as well. A Microsoft tech was controlling my computer remotely a few days ago while troubleshooting SP1 installation failures on Vista. He tried to help me access CBS.log by merging a registry file that added "Take Ownership" to my file/folder context menu (the little options menu that appears when you right-click a file or folder). I then took ownership of CBS.log and double-clicked on it but still was not allowed to open it. The tech moved on without trying anything else on CBS.log, saying it wasn't important to look at.

I just wanted to post that for anyone else out there wondering about this!
