    Keep getting Bad Image Error!

    The application or DLL C:\WINNT\system32\nvcpl.dll is not valid Window image. Please check this against your installation Diskette.

    The error message means that that file is corrupt and Windows can't recognise it as a DLL.

    I think it's a part of nVidia drivers so just reinstall those.

    I forget if nvcpl is an nvidia driver error, or a Norton Anti-Virus error, but Nodsu's advice is dead on. it's a generic DLL, you can probably find a copy from a reputable source, replace it (while in a recovery console or safe mode), reboot, and be happy.
