Ok, so here goes:

The computer in question is my mom's. Brand new laptop as of April 2010; home shopping network special (ugh, I know..) Anyway, it came with all sorts of software. From the story told to me, the computer worked fine until my sister installed the McAfee antivirus that came in the software bundle. Upon installation of that program, there have been a total of 6 "Bad Image" errors popping up at start-up referencing mscoree.dll as being corrupted. The "bad image" errors are for: mpnotify.exe, wltray.exe, delldock.exe, datasafeonline.exe, failsafelauncher.exe, and sprtcmd.exe.

Also, unable to access Control Panel. When selected, an error pops up that reads: "The instruction at 0x7786aa31 referenced memory at 0xfffffff. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program." (although the error message contains a different series of numbers each time) and the Control Panel closes.

It seems to be a fairly common problem given my google searches. Unfortunately, this is Windows 7 64-bit and cannot utilize Combofix. I'm not entirely sure what other information to provide.
