This was my personal computer that I used with no problems. I bought a new one and gave this one to my teenager and he downloaded everything he could find until it's so screwed up that I want to throw it out the window. (him too)
When I turn on the computer, I get a box that says "userinit.exe - Application Error" so I have to click OK to terminate it.
Next, I have to cntrl, alt, del then run explorer.exe
Then I get a box that says "rundll32.exe - Application Error" so I have to click on OK to terminate it.
Even when I make it to the desktop, there are so many things that don't work such as I can't change the wallpaper, screen resolution, clock, or open "add or remove programs". Each time I try to access one of those programs, I get the Rundll32 box again.
Where do I start to get things going again without a complete reinstall. I don't want to do that unless I have to because I have a lot of software on it that I no longer have access to the disks.
Also, there are no restore points.
