The Application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000185)

Please Help,

The above error message comes up when i try to open anything, the computer is running extremely slowly.

I am not very technical when it comes to computers. so any help would be great.

I can get no internet access at all to download fix's etc

Thanks in Advance
