However, AIM and MSN messenger both work fine, so I had a friend send me Mozilla FireFox, which installed fine. Upon opening, it just idles --- blank screen with the icon in the upper right hand corner spinning around. This lasts for as long as the program is open.
During the course of trying to fix this, several times I encounter the following message at startup:
"Explorer.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application."
I'm not complaining, because with no desktop icons or taskbar, I can use Process Explorer to open Internet Explorer and get onto this forum to ask for help. Has anyone encountered this problem? Is this common?
Any help would be vastly appreciated.
