Specs: xp mce, dual 512?
I know not a damn thing about computers, so any help is much appreciated. I never bring my laptop with me so it has been at home hibernating from 4/05-4/08. I get home and try to log in, then i get the message "application failed to initialize" (0xc0000006) userinit.exe , as goes for most major applications. There are too many errors in my event log to list, but some are "harddisk has a bad block, media center extender service terminated", such and such didn't respond in a timely fashion, etc. I don't a have a program disk, so wiping it clean is a last resort. Any help or suggestions? Thanks for your time.

"I don't a have a program disk,"

Are you saying that you don't have your Dell recovery software?


Sorry, I do not check for private messages

If you can get into safe mode try last known good configuration. Also maybe try a system restore in safe mode but I'm not sure if the restore points will still be there.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks

I tried the last known good configuration first, and I got "delayed write" errors, along with the usual "failed to initialize."
I did the 12 mb (my maximum) capability for a system restore, and although it took something off during the restart, the problem still occurs. Anything else that could be messing with my computer's inners? I would like to thank you for your effort.

Maybe try a Hi-Jack This
Just be sure to follow the instructions because if you do it wrong it could be fatal for your PC. Make sure to make a folder on C drive (HJT) before making any changes....that way it can be reversed if the wrong things get removed.
Then paste your results into Hi-Jack This analyzer
and see what kind of problems you have. If there's alot of problems, google their results and it will tell you which files are good or bad, giving you the option to remove or leave them.

If you have severe problems, hopefully Jabuck will request you to post the log in here so he can help you.

My computer is so Knee deep in the creek that i can't even surf the web. (Page cannot be displayed always comes up) I'm currently on my Compaq, I know that's desperate. So I guess my only option is to hunt down some recovery software? Thanks for your time, XP.

did you check out the hijackthis report?
Also, what kind of firewall are you using? I had a lady that had sygate and somehow she blocked IE, so all she got was page cannot be displayed.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks

I tried to view my firewall settings, but I get a message that says windows firewall/(ICS) cannot be started. I guess the kind is trend-micro 12. My disc drive won't cooperate so I guess that rules out the possibility of me loading Hi-Jinks via cd-rw. thanks again for trying to help me.
