    when i woke up i signed in and found out that windows 7 updated and now when i open any applications such as chrome, firefox and others i get a box that says i.e. chrome.exe Bad Image c:\progra~1\wia6eb~1\datamngr\\datamngr.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the origina installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support..... i get this with all the apps i open like chrome, firefox, yahoo etc. What can I do to fix this, as opening up different applications and programs and getting the bad image box pop up is annoying. I have tried right clicking on the shortcuts and run as administrator but still gets the same problem.

    Have you tried running a system restore back to before the update?
