Specs: Windows XP
I have internet explorer and firefox on my computer.
about a week ago explorer stopped opening.
everytime i clicked on explorer it would start to open
and then quickly close. i began using firefox and
yesterday it would not open. i get an error message
that says: "The application failed to initialize properly
(0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the
application. Any ideas what is going on? Thanks,

See event viewer logs.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
