Whenever I turn on the computer, open a program, start the internet, etc. an error message pops up telling me "suchandsuch - bad image" and then the text "C:\Windows\system32\AVGRSSTX.DLL is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error." I have tried running a scan using my antivirus, and another with Malwarebytes on reccommendation from a friend, but that didn't produce any apparent results. What should I do?

This file is related to AVG security. If you have AVG installed try uninstalling, rebooting, then re-installing. If it's not installed use the AVG remover tool to remove any traces of AVG. http://www.avg.com/ww-en/download-tools
Even if it is installed, you might want to use the appropriate Remover and then installing the latest AVG 2011 version. I hope this helps you with this.
