Windows 7: Win loads fine but none applications will load up.

Win loads fine but none applications will load up.

HI,
I have a weird situation: Just a normal day working on my pc while it messages me, system rebooting. It reboots without any errors. I log back into my system, everything seems fine. I notticed on my taskbar none of my applications loaded. Usually, MSN, my vid card, winamp...icons are loaded up and icons are in taskbar but not there!

I performed many actions to no avail.
System restore, safemode boot, selective services boot, sfc /scannow and so on.
I checked in Event viewer and see 5-6 service that did not responde to the start or control in a timely fashion.
Ex: acrobat, asus, bonjour, apple....

Got one I dint like:
The server {06622D85-6856-4460-8DE1-A81921B41C4B} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

When i click on any applications mostly non-MS apps nothing happens. Not even the services starts up in task man. I tried to open the service lets say, Steam client and get the Timeout error right away.


Hope someone got ideas! Thank you guys :O)

try reapplying the .exe registry settings from this tutorial here.
Default File Type Associations - Restore


...and if that fixes it, I would suggest a deep scan for viruses, they are usually the cause for that association getting messed up.

Try this, it sounds as if you're another Avast! update victim, maybe, run anyway, no harm is done...

Thx guys. I played around a bit on my system and noticed that ALL my 32bit applications will not run anymore. Im running Windows 7 x64 ultimate. The service appears in taskman then goes away when i launch a 32bit app.
This is strange because everything was fine until I get that reboot.

I was asked to run some AV scan and so on..but unless they are 64bit. I cant run them! It seem something is saying my box is now ONLY x64 and cannot undertake 32bit applications. WEIRD!!

what in the hell could of cause that? BIOS level?
any ideas??
THANK YOU

Symptoms would point to a problem with the WOW subsystem, which is the code that allows 32bit code to run on a 64bit system, though as to what's causing it I would also suspect some type of malware infection

You may want to have a look for the files and reg entries mentioned here ....
