I am assuming you have windows xp. If not, the solution will be different.

you have to repair explorer.exe.

try this first.
1. Push the button to turn computer on. Wait for one second, then tap F8 repeatedly. Choose safe mode. Click administrator. If it gives you the prompt with 'yes' and 'no' buttons. Click no. Restore the computer and choose a date when the computer was working.

If you get nothing in safe mode, you have to look for your windows xp cd.
and follow the instructions here to repair windows.
I have to warn you that repairing windows may work or may make your windows inaccessible. This is the best option you have though. As a last resort, you need to reinstall windows.
To make the repair work optimally, make sure you use the reinstallation cd for windows xp WITH SERVICE PACK 2. If your xp disc doesn't say service pack 2 on it, you can look for one that does or just use what you have.

Please help me to fix pc registry problem for window xp please


First try to do a System Restore.
  1. Open the start menu and click all programs.
  2. Go to Accessories.
  3. Go to System Tools.
  4. Then choose System Restore from that menu.
  5. When System Restore opens choose Restore my computer to an earlier time and hit next.
  6. On the calender see if you can pick a time before you started having problems. Choose that day and click next. It will run and should reboot the PC. It might take a little bit just let it do its thing.
If that doesn't work try this.
Open the My Computer icon on you desk top. If you don't see it on your desk top it will be in the start menu on right side of menu. Left click to open it. A window will pop up that show your drives (C:), (D:) and so on. Right click on the (C:) drive choose Properties from the drop down menu. The next window will have some tabs on the top. It will look something like this.

Click the Tools tab. There will be an option to Check Now. Click it and put a check in both little boxes and click the start button. It will say the PC needs to restart to preform this task. Restart the PC and walk away till it gets done.


Hope this helps.
Good Luck

After you open it right click the C drive.

In the drop down menu choose properties. On the top of the window choose the Tools tab.
You will see a option to Check Now. Click the Check Now button make sure both little boxes have a check in them and click the start button. It will say it won't start till PC is rebooted. Reboot the PC and let it run through it's scanning and fixing thing.
This may or may not fix the problem. It's only one of the things to try.

Start menu and desk top


Can you start it in Safe Mode? Press F8 while the computer is booting. click on Safe Mode with Networking when the menu comes up.
When you get into Safe Mode, run you anti-virus. And clean your Cookies, Temp files and Internet Temporary Files. And while in Safe Mode, run a defrag of the C: drive. Restart the computer and it should start up correctly.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
