Hello,

I would like to ask help regarding my problem.
/Win7 x64 Ultimate, filled the system specs/

So after i start my computer and Windows is loeaded i immediatly get the message: windows explorer has stopped working.
After i click on Start again, it works for a good 6 seconds, then again it stops.

So far i have tried
-installing vbrun60.exe
-Msvbvm50.exe
-Microsoft Fix it
-replacing with other OLEAUT32.dll
-deleting and replace it with downloaded dll
-did virus scan /nothing found/

Thats all i can remember, and none worked.

Any other ideas suggestions?
Thank you very much in advance.

See these two threads, especially the response about using regsvr32 to re-registr oleaut32.dll in the 1st one and ruinning sfc in the 2nd one.

Thank you for your help, i tried both.

/sorry for the raw translation/
The results:

-regsvr32 oleaut32.dll : oleaut32.dll modul was loaded but on calling DllRegisterServer
the system got the following error: 0x80070005

-sfc.exe /scannow : Windows found damaged Windows Resource Protection files, but was unable to fix them.

Any other solutions?

/ edit: i added the CBS log file that was created after the sfc.exe /scannow /
/sorry for cutting it into 3 parts, but the forum wouldnt allow me to upload larger than 1mb txt file in one.

Still didnt figured out what caused it, or how it can be solved so i formatted windows and reinstalled. Now it works perfectly. If in the future anyone will have the same problem my advice is save your time and just reinstall it, i messed it with 2 days..

Sometimes a reinstall is the quickest and surest way. Sorry I couldn't help though, but glad you got it working.
