Windows 7: Explorer.exe - Application Error

Windows 7 ultimate X64
Explorer.exe - Application Error

The error states:

explorer.exe - application error

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022). Click OK to close the application.

When I click OK, i just have a black screen. I can get the task manager going by hitting control, alt, delete. I've tried to start explorer.exe from the file menu, but get the same error.
