Just started happening this morning, when I open program I get spam by an error message box saying the exe I'm launching is a bad image. Anyone have any idea how to fix it (beside restoring back to an eailer state)

Aaaah, ok.

 

This is most likely an older junkware infection. I will request this thread moved to the appropriate forum for help.

Hi!, It seems that you are having malicious software running in your computer. I would advise you to use Junkware Removal Tool, and AdwCleaner (Just in case is a web based advertisement.) Here are the link for both of thems

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

 

I would personally run MalwareBytes. Most likely after this cleanup there are going to be a lot of empty or misdirected registries, so I would follow using a registry cleaner. The one I personally use is Registry Recycler. It has worked for me so far (I know it looks kind of suspicious.)

 

Regards.

Glad to hear you got it resolved. :)

One more thing to note...

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT advocate the use of Registry Cleaners and PC Optimization Tools.
Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and PC Optimizers

Alex
