Hi, I'm new to the forum.

First of all, I will admit to knowing nothing about how my laptop works. However, here's my problem:

When I turn on the laptop, it appears to be working properly, then the screen goes black and up pops a message saying: "winlogon.exe - Unable To Locate Component. This application has failed to start because ole32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"


The only option given to me is to click "ok". When I do this, it takes me to the "Log On to Windows" screen. I enter my password and then click log in. My desktop background loads up but I get no icons and no start button etc, just the background. Then the message appears again: "winlogon.exe - Unable To Locate Component. This application has failed to start because ole32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

Again, my only option is to press "ok". Then I'm stuck with just the background and nothing else. I have tried ctrl+alt+delete but nothing happens.

Can anybody help or am I stuffed? :thumbsup:

Thank you.
