    Hi Tech Guy forums I get multiple error messages upon login, as well as whenever I open an application. The error message is titled with "
    <applicationname>.exe - Bad Image"

    and the actual error consists of

    "C:\progra~3\browse~1'261095~1.52\{c16c1~1\browse~1.dll is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

    This has been appearing for about a week, I have tried multiple antivirus programs, Rogers Online Protection, Mcafee, and I also tried the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, none of them found any infections.

    Something I noticed is in the "Processes" tab of Task Manager, some processes are repeated, such as Rundll32.exe and sometimes the program that I'm using at the time, such as Google Chrome.

    If any help could be provided, that would be great, thanks!
