Hello,
I am running XP Home on my PC and have recently started having some issues. Specifically, I am getting Image Error messages whenever I boot up and when I try to download some software and software updates and thus can't complete the download. When I boot up my PC, I get the following measges:

"{S44C6FB81-KBDWINDCLS-B4F7-lld4-9FDD-0800460222FO} Bad Image"

When I tried to download Logitech software from their website for a webcam. I kept getting the following error message:

"setup exe - Bad Image" as the header and "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS32\CFGMGR32.dll is not a valid Windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette" in the baox of the message.

I also tried to update Kodak Easyshare software and receive the following message:

"One or more DLL's could not be loaded: ESApp.dll"

Now I can't download any pictures from my camera.

The last issue I am having is with my Control Panel. When I click on Printers and Faxes, Scanners and Cameras, etc. There are no printers listed, no printer icons, no cameras listed, no camera icons, etc. even though my printer/copier/scanner works fine.

I have used ParetoLogic PC Health Advisor, SpyBot Search and Destroy, DriverCure, Error Fix, and a few others to try and fix these problems. Nothing helps.
I apologize for the long post but I am totally frustrated! Any suggestions would help.

Thanks

I would try running the chkdsk /r command...the appropriate hard drive diagnostic...followed by the sfc /scannow command or a repair install of XP.

Bad image errors can be various things...file could be damaged, unreadable, could be malware, among examples I've seen.

Also don't use Error fix that is ineffective and it may further damage your computer.

Thanks Louis! Can you explain how I can perform the checks you suggest below?

"I would try running the chkdsk /r command...the appropriate hard drive diagnostic...followed by the sfc /scannow command or a repair install of XP."

I'm not real experienced in doing this stuff. Also, I ran a Hijack This log but really don't know what to look for.
Thanks for any help I can get!

To run chkdsk /r: Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter (note that there is a space between the k and /). On the new screen, type y and hit Enter. Reboot the system, the command will execute...upon completion, system will automatically boot into XP.

For the hard drive diagnostic...take a look in Device Manager under the detail for Disk Drives. Copy that data, use Google to see who the manufacturer is. Then read the following and download the appropriate diagnostic for your drive. Prepare it according to instructions. Change your boot options so that XP will boot from the CD/DVD drive first. Put the bootable CD you created in the drive, reboot the system...following the bouncing balls :thumbsup:. If a short test and a long test are offered, choose the long.
