so, my laptop is dell inspiron. i3, windows 7 home basic 64-bit, 4096MB RAM, etc etc.

few hours ago, i open my antivirus (eset) and open the 'quarantine' file, and then i decided to delete it, i feel hesitant so i open google and it says 'we should keep things on quarantine, hands off it' and i feel i've made mistake.

then i restarted my computer and every .exe program i opened, the 'BAD IMAGE' comes out, i'm frustated. i watched videos on youtube, and i saw that we should system restore it? i did it for 5 times and it didn't work out. please help me! i've been asking everyone i know but none of them knows how :(

When you’ve finished with those instructions, "you have a fully refreshed, up-to-date copy of Windows with all your essential files, settings, and programs intact and working. In fact, if all has gone as planned, the only significant change you’ll notice is that the original problem is gone!"

Have you tried using Windows' "System Restore" to roll Windows back to a previous state when your computer was functioning correctly? It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

Hello Kurlymee, and welcome to BC! :)

 

 'BAD IMAGE' comes out, i'm frustated.

Could you tell me (or take a screenshot) what the bad image looks like, or write down the error message for me?

 

We need to know exactly what this message is, if you don't want to follow SpywareDoc's suggestion!

 

Also, please let us know if you have your original Windows Installation CD available?

Simply leave them where they are. As I pointed out above, all of your files, settings, and programs will still be there.
