I have a desktop running XP Home SP2 which throws up a Message on startup headed as
Services.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate this application.
This appears on a black background and can't be shifted and I then have to restart the machine manually.
So far I have tried..
Checking memory - no faults
last known good, etc
I have booted into XP using ERD Commander and turned off all the programs set to start with Windows.
Tried a different version of Wininet.dll as it was suggested it might be corrupt.
Ctrl - alt - del repeatedly to try and get Task manager up.
All to no effect.
Anything else worth trying before I carry out a repair installation?
