I'm getting an error message that says:

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

I log on and my icons or toolbars do not appear on the screen at all. RIght now I'm working in safe mode. I've done defragmentation, and virus scan. I've come up with nothing. IT's a Dell computer and I've had it since september.

Please help. what should or can I do myself.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
