yes I have limewire installed but use it rarely.

by pradipto.moitra In reply to I notice that you are run ...

The problem is resolved, perhaps was an issue with rundll32.exe getting corrupt or something else.

I went for system restore and that seemed to have solved the issue, I have downloaded hijack this but never used it before so once I get used to it I will post the log if I face any further issues.

Log File of HijackThis

by pradipto.moitra In reply to I notice that you are run ...

The problem repeated itself, after I had done the syste restore.
It worked ok for some time but after I installed AVG and was running a scan the system stopped responding and I had to restart.
After restarting I was greeted with the rundll32.exe failed to initilaize properly etc msg.

I thus ran hijack this and the log of it I am pasting below:-

See how you go with this

by Jacky Howe In reply to Log File of HijackThis

Have you installed notepad++ Notepad replacement, if you have it has taken over the Windows Notepad. Try uninstalling it.
<br><br>
If that does'nt solve the problem Try this:
<br><br>
http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileassoc/xp_txt_fix.zip
<br><br>
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/utils/fileextinfo.zip
<br><br>
Wouldn't hurt to download and run Spybot update it and run it in Safe Mode.
<br><br>
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html
<br><br>

Run HijackThis again and put a tick on these two if they are still there after running Spybot and remove them as I can't find a reference to them anywhere.

userinit.exe--Application Error

by pradipto.moitra In reply to See how you go with this

Hi True Blue,

The problem is no more restricted to the notepad issue, its with multiple programs and aplications and even at the logon windows screen.

The following files will perhaps exemplify the issue:-
http://cid-7dd6f65edce61d83.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/ScreenShots--Etc/Notepad--Etc

About notepad++ well I have definitely downloaded that but haven't installed that, so that cant cause the issue.

The other thing that might be a bit out of the way but still how do you change the dislay name that appears in the forum/posts rather than the default email--id.

Regards,

Prad

notepad++

by Jacky Howe In reply to userinit.exe--Application ...

has a reference to it in the registry.
<br><br>
Click on Manage My Account, logon and change your Username.
<br><br>
Copy and paste the lines below into Notepad and save it to the Desktop as DLL.bat
<br><br>
Double left click on it and it will re-register all of your .DLL files.
<br><br>

<br><br>
@echo on
<br><br>
C:
<br><br>
cd %windir%\system32
<br><br>
for %%s in (*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %%s
