Hi all. I'm running win2k pro on an older machine (around .8 ghz). I keep my machine very clean and protected to the best of my ability. A few days ago, while visiting a website I received a small box popup asking if I wanted to receive "free [bleep]". I just clicked the "x" on the window and once I did, my entire browser shut down. When I went to restart it, It gave me this:

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application.

I restarted the system...nothing. I reinstalled IE6...nothing. I tried to uninstall IE6, but ended up having to use IEradicator to remove it. I was up and running with IE5.5, but as soon as I upgrade to 6 I receive the same error. Furthermore, while I'm here with firefox, I cannot use microsoft update, and my scheduled updates are not working.

Can anyone help?
