Windows 7 64x
Bad Image error in Windows 7 64

Hi, having a difficult issue with a customer who gets the following message when opening some but not all .exe files. Soz about the long message but ill list the things i have tried.

"C:\Windows\system32\ajpjDhglj.DLL 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 your system administrator or software vendow for support."

The error pops up for the same file name if i run say malwarebytes or explorer but not with Ccleaner. Clicking ok gets rid of the message and the program runs anyway.

I thought the file name looked virus like but nothing gets picked up by malwarebytes or MSE. If i look for the file in System32 it is not there and is not hidden either. I searched drive C for the file and to my surprise it came up but in Windows\sysWOW64 instead but all the letters were in caps this time. If i Scan it with MSE i get nothing but if i scan it or any other single file with malwarebytes the error changes to "C:\Windows\sysWOW64\AJPJDHGLJ.DLL is either not designed to run on windows or... "

Most bad image threads ive read can be fixed by doing a SFC /SCANNOW but it doesnt work for me. Ill try updating him to sp1 in the meantime.

This has me stumped anyone have any ideas?
