My neighbour asked if I could fix this problem, but I couldn't find the solution.
The problem is as follows:
When starting up Windows XP Pro (SP2), the error window occurs:
Application explorer.exe failed to initialize and needs to close (0xc0000142).
Then there's just blank black screen (desktop fails to start). I managed to run explorer.exe through Task Manager, also in Safe Mode everything works fine. I tried a couple related solutions on this forums, as well as from other places, also did full scan with Symantec Corporate Edition, CHKDSK doesn't show any problem, removed/repaired all suspicious things HijackThis showed and uninstalled all programs which (in my opinion) could be causing this. Didn't help...
Edit:HJT log removed
Thanks for help
