Hi Tech Guys,

After a recent restart I've been experiencing an issue where a number of applications will not load. Not sure of the cause of this but I cannot recall any specific installs or changes made.

When I attempt to open these applications I see a dialogic box titled "<application>.exe - Bad Image" and contents "The application or DLL C:\Program Files\<Program path>.dll is not a valid Windows Image."

I've seen this appear many times on your forum and others however the solutions appear to be tailored to the individual users' issues so I though I'd start my own help thread. Hopefully its fairly easy for you since its happened to a few people.

I was able to restore functionality to some software such as Acrobat Reader by re-installing the software itself, and iTunes by getting Windows XP install CD to try and repair itself.

If I try to start Outlook it begins to load and I'm presented with a "Microsoft Office Outlook has encountered a problem and needs to close" dialogic box.

Both Windows Live Messenger and the HP Toolbox are showing the "Bad Image" dialogic box. Windows Live will not allow me to reinstall.

I have also tried a system restore but it always comes up as FAILED after the reboot is complete.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here is the HJT log:
