Anyway, here is the problem....XP almost starts fine, but then a message pops up:
"userinit.exe- Application error"
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005) Click on OK to terminate the application"
Then the desktop comes up without the taskbar or any icons. I hit ctrl+alt+del and the task manager does come up but I didn't want to do anything until I consulted the pros on this site. I tried bringing it up in safe mode, but same error and no desktop there either. Not really sure where to go from here. I see what some peoples fix was, but I'm aware that every situation is different. I would hate to use someone elses fix as it might not pertain to my system or problem. Please someone help me get this thing fixed. She doesn't know what to do with herself without her email and games.
