Windows 7: Windows 7 repeated bad image error messages

Malware Fix (worked for me)

Finally found the problem...at least on my computer.Turns out there was malware running that eluded 3x antivirus programs (Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, and Symantec). When I finally went to system restore I found the problem.By pure luck the system restore failed because it could not copy a file from the restore point because that file did not exist...because it was Malware.That Malware file was C:\ProgramData\Performancer\Performancer.dll).
I ran Malwarebytes again and sure enough it had caught the program but it was unable to delete the program entirely and so it continued to persist.I then searched for and deleted the "C:\ProgramData" folder which only had the "Performancer" file in it.Next, I used the control panel to search for and Uninstall the "Performancer" program.Sure enough it was there but would not uninstall.I went to CNET and downloaded IObit Uninstaller which worked like a champ. Finally, I searched the entire drive for remnants of any ProgramData or Performancer files, which were all gone, and ran all three antivirus software programs again just for good measure and rebooted.
No longer have “Bad Image” popups at start or when opening programs. Hope this helps. Cheers.
