Everything was working fine, I shut down my computer and then started it up again a bit later and now the only thing that starts up properly is internet explorer..

Everything else just gives me this error message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK to terminate the application.
Any help would be MUCH appreciated. Please :[.

Id you have a Windows XP cd you can do a repair install of the OS. If you don't have a CD, Find one somewhere to use.
