Question about HP Pavilion dv9700t Notebook PC
When I start my computer I get an error message "application failed to start because shdocvw.dll was not found. Reinstall the application may fix problem". If I hit enter all i get is a black screen. The only way I can access anything is through task manager. I've searched and the shdocvw.dll is still in the windows file. How can I fix this?
What OS? Have you tried F8 at boot to enter safe mode?Can you actually boot windows ok?
Here is a link to HP support options.
I would begin by running chkdsk c: /r from the recovery console (or from windows if you can get it to run.) (instructions here & here)
Then use MBAM to scan for malware.(guide here.) and remove anything it finds.
If no joy, run sfc /scannow and see if that helps. (instructions here)
If that doesn't help, try uninstalling and reinstalling your Internet Explorer. See here for info about the shdocvw.dll file.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
