First off- I'm totally new here so Hello! I'm Marcus.

I realize there have been posts on this in the past as that is how I found this site, but they all seemed to be very specific for the persons computer.

My problem started when I closed my laptop (Alien m9700 with XP home) and it was supposed to go into standby. I came back later and opened it and it was still stuck in "Going into hibernation" ... so I held down the power button to kill it, and when I turned it back on it had a blue screen with something about deleting a few corrupt files? Once the computer started, and every time i log in or restart, i started getting a bunch of these bad image errors.
I'll post them how I get them:

First: one is an iexplore.exe error that I had to exit to have anything come up on my desktop.

second: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Third: iTunesHelper.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\DSOUND.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Fourth: msnmsgr.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\DSOUND.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Fifth: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Sixth: iTunesHelper.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\DSOUND.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Seventh: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Eighth: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Ninth: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Tenth: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Eleventh: iexplore.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\MSVFW32.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Twelfth: drwtsn32.exe- Bad Image "The application or DLL E:\WINDOWS\system32\DBGHELP.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

Its causing me a lot of trouble and I can't do much on the computer.... Also can't watch videos, be it youtube or any other way....

Advice please? I'm not bad with computers but I've never come across this issue..

I tried, but it ends with "an equivalent or newer version has already been installed" and just exits

I also tried a system restore but it did nothing. Not sure if that was a bad idea or not...

Try the following: sfc /scannow via command prompt.

Start > Accessories > System Tools > Command Prompt.
