  1. Hey I'm wondering, more so hoping someone can help me with this problem I'm having. For some reason my computer keeps giving me a Bad Image error.

    (Name of Program).exe - Bad image
    The application or dll c:\progra~\wi37ia~\datamngr\jebho.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

    This issue is very annoying and is really upsetting me and family. I'm not sure how this happened but any help would be much appreciated to resolving me problem.
    Thank you in advance.

    Sorry this probably wasn't the right place to post this but its the only place i can post at it seems like.

    SFC still works on XP. Although, as you saw, it will ask for your OS disk.

    Not sure what else I can say to help, maybe someone else has better insight.

    Try these to clear corruption and repair/replace damaged/missing system files.

    Run DiskCleanup - Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Cleanup

    Start - type in Search box - COMMAND find at top of list - RIGHT CLICK - RUN AS ADMIN

    sfc /scannow
