Explorer.exe error

  s99Raj 17:36 06 Jan 04

When I switch on my IBM ThinkPad (which is running Windows 2000 Professional) it starts up OK but then sticks on the following dialog box, which is headed "Explorer.EXE - Application Error" :

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click OK to teminate the application.

If I click OK, then the machine just hangs, and i can only get out of it by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

Any ideas what I should try? Thank you.

One major problem is that I can't even get into Windows i.e. I can't get to the Start menu or any Window at all. The same applies in Safe Mode.
