I've read one post in your forum about this problem, but it did not give much idea to me :) Hope that you'll be able to help me here. Recently I began having this problem. Firstly my Google chrome browser breaks down and then other programs seem not to work at all, I keep receiving the message: "the application failed to initialize properly (0xc00012d). And nothing works neither task manager, nor control panel. As I've read in the previous topic I've scanned it with Hijackthis, and the log is as follows:

I really hope that you'll be able to guide me.

Thanks for your time in advance :)

Follow Start bar ⇨ Programs ⇨ Accessories ⇨ System Restore. If you able to system re store, then copy the line below, and then paste it to Windows+R (the window key + R)

"%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --user-data-dir=c:\testchrome

let us know what happens (if chrome works, this means you have a corrupted profile)
if it doesn't the problem lies somewhere else.....

this will also create a folder under c:\ called testchrome, which you can safely delete after.

If those not apply you need fresh install your window.
