The SubSytem needed to support the image type is not present.

Ok. So I logged on this morning. Go to start Google Chrome up, I get 'The SubSytem needed to support the image type is not present.' I then reboot, Same thing, I've tried using Chkdsk, Nothing there, I've also tryed using SFC /SCANNOW which found errors but couldn't fix them... Anyone have any ideas? As I am limited to IE and Paint right now.

Welcome Joshyy, try running the sfc /scannow up to three times, rebooting between each one.
does any other program give this error?

Nearly every single program gives this error, Avast! Free doesn't work which is a real scare for me as I have litttle protection.

I will try running the SFC again.

Also enter this command in an elevated command window (Type cmd in start orb search and right click cmd.exe > run as administrator) and restart.
Code:
start /w ocsetup.exe ServerCore-WOW64

Unfortunately I think you are going to need a Repair Install As a precaution back up your data first although it should be safe along with your installed programs.
