    Hi guys,
    Few days back, i got a problem in my pal's PC. he is connected to the net. I dont know whether its a virus or not.
    when u go to cmd.exe or add/remove programs and system properties, a dialog pops up
    Showing
    "rundll32.exe - application error
    the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).
    Click on OK to terminate the application"
    I have searched all thro the net. But i haven't got any good solution.

    i want to mention some other things also. My system fails to boot in safe mode. I cant fix that either. If i go to safe mode after listing out the files. It starts to restart. I tried cleaning the system with kaspersky beta 2009. It captured about 200 virus files. But still that problem continues.

    If CD DRIVE icon is not showing up, then try to disable / enable CD DRIVE from device manager. I strongly recommend you to use GOOD REGISTRY CLEANER to solve this problem.

    This is the download page for the regcleaner,I used for XP.
    Code:
    http://majorgeeks.com/download460.html
    Using this cleaner, try to clean-up STARTUP items and remove the unidentified apps from startup.

    Or you can give a try to free tool named TWEAKUI for XP. it has options to hide/unhide the icons in explorer.

    Don't u have the service on of "SYSTEM RESTORE" ? IF u have, then try to restore the system to some good previous time.
