For some reason I am getting this error code (Explorer.exe The Application Failed to Initialize properly (0xc0000022). Click Ok to Terminate the Application) whenever I try to log into my computer. I put in my password and then this message comes up and nothing happens it wont go to my desktop or anything. I then restarted and logged into my machine through safe mode and everything works. I tried to run a windows update to see if I was missing an update or something but in Safe Mode it will not let me run Windows updates. I also went to add and remove programs and tried to uninstall the most recent application I installed to see if that was the problem but once again I can not uninstall anything in safe. If someone could help me out with this problem I would really appreciate it thanks.

This is an access denied error - which is unusual for explorer.exe

// MessageId: STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
//
// MessageText:
//
// {Access Denied}
// A process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights.
//
#define STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED ((NTSTATUS)0xC0000022L)


Can you start in Safe Mode with Networking and visit this free site for an independent scan of your system?: http://housecall.trendmicro.com

If it turns out to be an infection (or the scan refuses to run/complete), I'd suggest starting a topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
If not, then post back here and we'll try some more stuff.

I tried to run the scan in safe mode but some Java update needs to install before it will scan but it will not let me install java update in safe mode. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks again

Try a couple of these free, online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

Looks like the Pandasecurity one is working. Looks like it already found one threat. Once its finished should I post what the infection was here?

So I tried the Panda scan3 times I thought it was going to work but everytime it would get to 77% complete and stall right there. So I went on to the bitdefender Scan and that one worked however it didn't find any viruses or anything. Do you have any other suggestions I should do?

Does anyone else have any suggestions for me, this problem is really starting to get under my skin. I have searched all over online and tried a bunch of different things but nothing has resolved the problem. I would really appreciate it.

You are bing helped on another forum wadeb_21. The more forums you post your question at and answers you get, will only confuse those (me) who are trying to help.
