Everytime I boot up my computer and whenever I try to open an exe. file a "bad image" window pops up. The computer is also very slow and often freezes.

Bad image errors can be indicators of many things, IMO.

With a specific program...it's often file corruption that can be overcome by uninstalling said program and then reinstalling.

If such occurred on varied programs...I would be thinking either malware, a bad/corrupted partition or O/S or a bad hard drive.

To check out the malware possibility, I will move this to the Am I Infected forum.
