Issue 1: For the last day or so I'm getting Bad Image error messages when trying to open a few programs that were just fine before this. The errors have d3d8.dll, D3D8.DLL (yes one is capitalized), and D3D10.DLL and the error pop up says they are not designed to run on windows or have errors and please reinstall. A reinstall did not work.
Issue 2: Something keeps trying to access "F:/autorun.inf" and my Avira stops it. The F drive is my recovery partition and in that autorun.inf file is this:
ShellExecute=Info.exe protect.ed 480 480
Issue 3: I can no longer see any contents of zipped folders after I extract them with the built in windows extractor. Even if I know the zipped folders have something in it, once I extract it the folder is empty. However, if I use a 3rd party program and extract that same zipped folder the contents appear as they should be.
Issue 4: This is a weird one. If I go into my "Uninstall Programs" through the control panel, I am unable to uninstall anything. The option to uninstall does not come out if I double click a program like it normally would have. Also if I right click a program in the list, the menu is blank! It's just a gray little box but with nothing there.
Issue 5: windows defender no longer opens. I get the failed to initialize error. This might have been before all the other stuff above and unrelated but I'm not sure because I just noticed it today.
Issue 6: all my restore points from before have somehow been deleted now as well. Not sure how that happened and if it's related or not either
I've done a scan with Malwarebytes and it found 1 item that was called broken.opencommand (I believe?) and Super AntiSpyware found 3 items that all had to do with Rogue Advanced Antivirus 2008. I let the programs fix those for me and rebooted and all my issues are still there. Any ideas what this could be?? Thanks in advance for your help.
