Winbrand.dll bad image error
Well... i have had some computer problems with this laptop, and most of them have been just quality of life things and have been solved here; but this is the worst of them yet.
This is the error i am getting, just started getting it today. i have no idea what caused it or how it came about..
C:\Windows\system32\windbrand.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 vendor for support.
i did get a blue screen, but it was only up for like 3 maybe 4 seconds. Then it said "windows failed to start" so i restored it to my update 3 days ago. But i am still getting the error. But windows does start up, i am posting this thread from my laptop now. But this error is a system32 error, so i gather the file is of some great importance.
i get it when i start my computer (before the password page), when i shut down my computer (just before the shutdown screen), when i open my task manager (just after i Crtl/Alt/Delete, but i can still use the task manager after).
PS. i cant run SFC Scan. Why? my windows does not have autochk.exe on it. Someone here tried to help me fix that but alas i couldnt get a fix for it.

Considering you've been having several issues with this computer, along with the problem of not being able to run a System File Checker scan, do you have the 7 Pro 32-bit installation DVD (not recovery disks) to try a Repair Install? A repair install would hopefully fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc.
