hi everybody!

i would like to ask if somebody could provide me solution to my vista problem. after logging in i face an error (explorer.exe application error related to (0xc0000142)). this error prevents to display all the contents usually seen in the desktop. even the start button.

it started when i changed some dll and ocx files in the system32. i didnt expect it to affect my current vista config. how do i restore the old system32 files?

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

You shouldn't be surprised if Windows gets 'broken' after you've been messing about with ocx and dll files. These are essential system files and should be left alone unless you know what you're doing and are sure that a particular file is not needed by anything.

If you can run the Vista 'System File Checker', do so. Explained here: http://www.tech-reci...em_file_checker

Failing that you'll have to use the PC Manufacturer's Restore Discs if any were supplied.
