Hi everyone,

When i boot up my computer and windows starts the first thing i get before anything is an explorer.exe application error. here is exactly what is in the error box. (The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).

I sorta a novice so be easy on me. :-)

I've been reading the forum and people are using hijacker. How can I run anything when I can seem to see no desktop item (only wallpaper) no rightclick to get anywhere, and no taskbar or menu to run highjacker.
I use a dualboot system, one drive has and OS on it with business things, while the other is for my gaming and stuff with a bootable OS (XP Pro) on it. I can see the drive through this OS I am using but I can't boot from it any more.
Just before that I had on another drive (my storage drive) it went through the process of (lightblue screen) during booting process - something like "there seems to be a problem with drive: x this file must be checked..." or something to that matter. Well I let it check it and lost almost all the data in the drive. I'll use Getdataback to get some of it back or is there a better way.

First and foremost is fixing the other drive (gaming with some stray business files on it). What is need to be done.

I have highjacker but it only gives me data for this drive (my boot drive) that is (knock on wood) running fine. :)

Remember, I know computers but when it comes to the programming and fixing the software end - take it nice and slow. I'd appreciate it.

So, what would you like me to do so I can get this problem fixed - as soon as I can.

Thank you,
Craig W.

say a prayer for the people in the gulf area because of hurricane katrina and as for the looters :tazz: - take 'em out.
