I recently received a laptop from a friend to get fix. as you can see in the screenshot, I am getting this bad image error message whenever the computer starts or shutsdown. I have resolved the issue before (different computer) with just a sfc /scannow, but this time is not working. Can anyone give me an advice on anything else I can try??

this is what I have tried
- SFC/ SCANNOW
-Disk repair
- chkdsk /r from system recovery cmd
- startup repair from system recovery
-System Restore to an earlier state
- performed virus scan with AVG/Malwarebytes/NAV
-replaced the files with known good ones from different machine (same version)


running Windows 7 Ultimate (genuine) SP1 on Dell Inspiron Laptop

You may have to boot from the media and repair the install.

It seems that most Logonui problems like this end in one of two ways, either sfc /scannow or running antivirus scans while in safe mode fixes the issue or a reinstall is required.

If SFC fixed this before for you, what if you delete them and let SFC fix / replace / register them?  They may not be "registered" correctly (regsvr32.exe <filename.dll>.

Or

Use the Process Monitor Tool to find out what is going on.

sfc /scannow fixed the issue on a different computer before, meaning I know this is what usually fixes this type of problem. I ended up re-installing the OS. Thank You All!!!
