Op system- XP- Home edition



I can turn the computer on ,it will boot up just fine. I can go to log onto my user account, It will display this message (Explorer.Exe-applacation error as

the title in the header bar) the applacations failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142) and a blank desktop (my wall paper is there). I can press

ctrl+alt+del and log off. I can log back on with the same user account or using another user account and no probs. Then log off and back to mine with no

probs. If I restart the computer it will shut down due to pcu fan not running. I dd a virus scan with mc a fee no virus. Once I get logged on there is no

problems. After the compu is on for a period of time, I can shut the computer down and start back up again and works fine. Any suggestions? I hope that this

can be understood .Thanks.

I forgot to add it olny does this if the computer is shut down overnite or all day.

Howdy jjmdos. :)

Let's run SFC and see if it works:

1. Go to Start > Run
2. Type in the box sfc /scannow
3. Press Enter

Let me know how that goes. :)

It is funny I turned it on this evening and no problems????????????????????????????????? I still did what you said. After Windows file Protection was done the box dissapeared.
I would assume that all the window file are proper.

Thanks.

If I restart the computer it will shut down due to pcu fan not running.

What is this all about?
Is this still happening?

If this is a desktop, have you cleaned the fans?
Are the fans spinning?
Are there any cables caught in the fans?
