This is a work computer plagued with problems. This morning, the computer was apparently interrupted while booting, and the desktop disappeared. Explorer.exe could be found, but not run. Reg is set properly she'll explorer.exe. I spent all afternoon trying workarounds, and nothing. Ran anti-vir, combofix, nothing detected.
Did a repair install of Windows XP pro SP2, with a windows xp pro sp2. As soon as the users come up, I get a BSOD stop error c000021a at 0xc0000005 (0x7c9106c3 0x00eaf094)
Seems to be a login problem/conflict. I've been avoiding a fresh install at all costs, as these people have old programs installed with no disks for them. Help is appreciated. The repair install will boot in safe mode, whereas the missing explorer.exe install would not.
