Just tried 5.9.4 in hopes that this error might have been resolved, but no luck. I sure hope that it gets fixed one day; it is definitely the best program of its kind available.

Tried 5.5.0 for a week, but the problem continues so I must uninstall once again.
After 2 days of no "bad Image" error messages with 4.0.8 Beta, I downloaded installed version 5.0.1 today. I received one Bad Image message on installation and have gotten a few more at random intervals. They click off easily and other than being a bit annoying, seem to have no effect on computer or program operation.
Got a clean bill of health (0/51 rating) from virus total. I don't think it's related but just in case: .when I first tried to send the file to virustotal it complained that the file was empty, but that it had analyzed it numerous times before and found it safe. The file shows 321KB when I search for it outside of virus total. When I asked virustotal to reanalyze the file it happily did so and and gave the above results.
I will also restart and see if error report form appears.
After 2 days of no problems & filling out error report form on start up saying no problems, the same old error has started to occur!! I periodically get the "SystemExplorer.exe - Bad Image" error message. The problem is not as severe as it was previously because when you click it off it takes a few minutes before recurring. Other than the display of the message the computer & System Explorer run fine. The only thing I did differently today is click on the new settings link on the mouse-over popup. I didn't change anything just looked at it. Hope this all help for a complete solution.
Installed 4.8.0 Beta and it is running fine so far, no error messages or other errant behavior. Thanks you very much for fixing this pgm, I find it very useful in a variety of ways.
