"Bad Image" popup on every *.exe files which needs to be run

Unread postby footimad » October 12th, 2009, 11:47 am

Hi there,
I am new to this forum.
Problem: whatever program I try to run, I will get a pop up message with a header "*.exe" badimage. The body of the popup goes like this: "C:\windows\system32\eappcfg32.dll is either not designed to run....". In most cases, once I click on the popup to close it, the program runs.

My PC Spec: P4, 3.0GH, 4G memory, 80G HD.

I have tried to run memory optimization/ cleaning programs but with no effect.

I appreciate any assistance I can get to resolve this problem. Thanks in advance.

Here is the HJT dump file:

I managed to sort the problem out by using COMBOFIX.EXE. It was like a miracle after searching the net for over a week to find a solution. Therefore, consiedr this posting as closed. :lol:

Not a good idea to run Combofix without the guidance of someone trained in its use. This is specifically against the recommendations and advice of its creator.

Whilst we're happy you've resolved your problem, we cannot recommend that anyone else take the actions that you have.

Since you no longer require help here .....
