Hi, I'm on safemode at the moment (which does work) and basically this is what happened:

I downloaded Metin 2, and it said I couldn't open it because of something, so I searched the web for a way to fix it; I found a forum where someone had fixed a way of doing it, they said just do the C Drive Scan (I didn't have to download anything), it said that I had to schedule one because C drive was in use. I restarted my pc, it did the scan, and now the beginning it says: Explorer.exe failed to initialize ( 0xc000005 ) and has a black screen with the cursor. I can enter into Safemode which works... Any suggestions?

What kind of scan did you do?
Have you tried to uninstall Metin 2 in Safe Mode?

Erm, I think it was a Driver Scan, which you can access by right clicking My Computer...

And I've already uninstalled Metin 2, that was one of my first things to try... I've tried defragging, and doing the scan again. Neither of these work.

Although now I am getting a new code, instead of ( 0xc000005 ) its now: ( 0xc0000022 )

c0000022 is an "access denied" message. Something changed the permissions allowing explorer.exe to access something on your PC.

Have you scanned for viruses? Here's a link to the malware forums: http://www.geekstogo...emoval-f37.html

Yeh I've scanned for virus'. It didn't come up with anything, I think I'm just going to reset back to factory defaults.

Ok, i've found a solution. If you search and download Vista Service Pack 2, it will install and fix it :)
