Following my earlier thread...application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006) click ok to terninate the application....should I perform a windows repair from the cd? as at the moment I cannot run any Anti-Virus programme.

Running a repair will not do any harm although it is not guaranteed to sort the problem. I would give it a go. Remember and back up any important stuff just incase

Chris147, Initially Avast, then I tried AVG. I have managed to remove both now!!

Hmn.

The error code suggests a Registry problem. You can either try to fix the registry (have a look on Google for the code - someone may have already posted a fix), or Repair Windows as you thought and this should fix it.

Backing up is sound advice - don't ignore it!

HTH

Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space) you will need your XP CD. Quicker and easier than a repair
