I'm sorry for the horrible subject line, but I did search (with no results) and maybe this will be helpful to others later .. ?? ...
**I can NOT access device manager, msconfig, or any other "managing" function with this computer. I've virus scanned with 2 different scanners, ccleaner, ms security software, spybot, etc ..
When trying to access device manager, msconfig, ect... I get the error...
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.
I've done google searches for DAYS and nothing works.
My setup ..
Gateway box model DX4860
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
i5-2300 @ 2.80
8.0 GB RAM
Video card **after market HD 5570,
Does ANYBODY have ANY idea of what I can do??? I do not have an install disk to re-install windows or I would have already done that. I'm stuck.
