I have just restart my computer after an automatic updates done by Windows.
After restart, when its time for the desktop to load.

A pop up window pops up.

Header : EXPLORER.EXE - Bad Image

Message: The application or DLL C:/WINDOWS/system32/BROWSERUI.dll is not a valid window image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

hi people,

i did several things that i could do..
such as system restore, try to do a safe mode boot up, using diagnostics bootup, etc..
finally i come across a page that talks a little about dll file.
seems similar cases.

And there is a reply where to perfom sfc /scannow

Scanning for quite some time and even when it completed. There isnt any message, maybe i missed it.

So last attempt, boot for the last time.

Hey wa laaa... my desktop comes back to live! and my explorer is back!

one more qn will be from me again.

Is it required to do windows update?
Can i skip that and what is the consequences?

I do not hope for a hang up problem again...
:whistling:

i wasted my sleep til 630am..
now going back to ZZzZzzz.. yawns

glad to hear you worked it out.

You should do windows updates and download all CRITICAL updates...the others are othtional (recommended and hardware), if you system is working ok


Critical updates fix borken windows componants and large security breaches that could allow your machine to be taken over or destroyed by malicious software code.
