I have a new error message on my system that started about a month ago. Each time I run Windows Update, I get this message in an error window:
wuapp.exe - Bad Image. The text box in the error window says "C:\PROGR~1\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\OFFICE14\Cultures\office.odf is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact you system administrator or the software vendor for support.
Once I dismiss the error message with the OK button, I get the exact same error box a second time. Once I dismiss that one, Windows Update starts normally and seems to work as designed.
The PC exhibits no other bad behavior. The system is protected with Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 and repeated virus scans with that product have detected no issues. Similarly, a quick scan with Malwarebytes detected no issues.
Anyone have an idea how to diagnose and fix this problem?
