I keep receiving these odd "Bad Image" errors on start up and I can't even access my task manager as every time I do I receive another bad image error. And in less than an hour everything just freezes up and I have to do a hard restart.

It only started doing this recently, and it was after my girl friend was using to look for some sex toys, so I'm sure she caught a virus of some sort and I don't even know how to start trouble shooting it.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Here's a list of some of the errors I keep getting on start up,

Logon.exe is not a valid WIN32 application

Rundle32.exe - Bad Image - The application or DLL c:/windows/system32/guyajula.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

HP Wireless Assistant.exe - Bad Image- The application or DLL c:/windows/system32/guyajula.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

ctfmon.exe - Bad Image - The application or DLL c:/windows/system32/guyajula.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

I'm assuming it has something to with this guyajula.dll file, but I can't find it in my system32 folder and when I google I don't get any hits.

Thanks a lot and appreciate any and all help!

Try running malwarebytes in safe mode...that usually cleans out most viruses.

Off-Topic: Your girl was looking up sex toys...NICE. :D

Try these, too, if Malwarebytes does find anything.
SuperAntispyware
A-Squared This one is a malware finder and A/V scanner in one. Pretty nice, it has found stuff that others missed, but it has given a couple of false positives.
