receiving the following error on windows server 2003 terminal server

Explorer.EXE Application Error
 The instruction at "0x7c93ffe2" referenced memory at "0x7c93ffe2" .  The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of "0xc0000185"

Click OK to termimate the program (brings the error back up again)
click cancel to debug the program (reboots the server and brings error back up)

run check disk  and verify if any corruption is still there on the HDD

after that download malwarebytes and verify if any infection is there on the server

what about in safe mode ? if its working in safe mode then

Disable all third party services from start up

1) Click Start then Run and type “MSCONFIG”
2.  Select the “Services” tab as displayed and check the “Hide all Microsoft Services” and click “Disable All”.
NOTE: When you “Hide all Microsoft Services” you will see the applications that are installed on the system. Often times there are applications that are crucial to the boot/logon process (like drive encryption software) which will cause the machine even more problems. You will need to review the applications and disable what you can (more the better).

Select the “Startup” tab and click “Disable All” once again. If you find disabling all the third party applications causes a bigger issue you can press F8 at startup and select “Last Known Good” or “Safe mode” to back out the changes to “msconfig”.



    3. Once the third party services are disabled you will need to reboot (a window will appear stating you need to reboot. Once the machine comes back up another window will appear when you logon, just click “OK”).

    4. Test and see if the boot time is the same or not.
