Hi, FireStorm

Are you on Windows 10 with the fall creators update by any chance?

If so, check if you have the following security update installed:


If so uninstall it. Then verify the game files within Uplay before rebooting.

If you are unsure how to check if you have, and uninstall, windows security updates:

Go to Control Panel
Programs and Features
View installed updates

You will see a list of installed updates where you can also delete them.

As I understand it from doing my own research when I was plagued with this problem is Bad Image errors relate somehow to Microsoft Visual C++ Distributable files becoming corrupted by various causes. I found the main culprit is usually bad Windows Security Updates.

Other possible fixes can be found here (though these did not work for me. I even did a clean install of Windows)
