Cannot Boot Explorerframe.dll Corrupted


I used a software called custopack tools to make my windows 7 look like a mac. I got an error. Which i forgot what it said. When i restarted my computer, an error popped up when i typed in my password to log on to windows. Here is the error:

"C:\windows\system32\explorerframe.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. " That error popped up, and it loads up a black screen with only that error and my cursor. I tried booting into safe mode, but there is still that black screen with the error.

Error - Explorerframe.dll File Damaged

So, yesterday, booted up my laptop to find that when i tried to log in, windows explorer would crash. I would get past the login screen, and before it could load the desktop, i got the error message "windows explorer has stopped working"

I wrote down the specs of the error message.

Problem event name: inpagecofire
Error status code: c0000185
Faulting media type: 00000003
Damaged file name: explorerframe.dll
Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 768. 3
Locale id: 1033

So, i restarted in safe mode. I got the same error.

Started in safe mode with cmd prompt, and ran sfc/ scannow. It seemed to stall at 13% for nearly 45 minutes. I stopped this, and tried to repair the system -and- also tried 3 system restores (up to two months back) from the f8 menu. They all failed, and i wasn't able to log in normally and have windows explorer function. This file is located at c:/windows/system32/explorerframe.dll

I could back up my hard drive and just do a full wipe, reinstalling windows, but i don't want to have to reinstall all of my programs. Anyone have any suggestions?

Repeated Master Boot Record Corrupted

Had an old hd out in oct 2009. New hd was loaded with windows xp home ed. New hd was west. Digital 500g sataii 32mb 7200rpm. Switched to windows 7 pro in late dec. 2009.system ran fine until feb 10, 2010.

Tried start up repair and got message "start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically". Tried bootrec.exe tool options. No joy. Finally problem determined to be corrupt master boot record.

Had the oct west. Digital hd tested professionally by store where hd was purchased. 8 bad sectors. Dealer replaced hd with identical replacement under in-store warranty i had purchased. Hd was partitioned to separate windows 7 from other files. 50g allocated to windows 7

Re-installed windows 7 pro along with firefox, thunderbird, adbloc plus , adobe acrobat (latest version), ms security essentials and one game copyrighted in 2002. Btw, the game ran fine for years in xp.

1st feb hd lasted less than 1 week. Same messages. Same final diagnosis, master book record is corrupt. Went back to dealer. Had all components tested. Only bad actor was the 1st feb hd which had 2 bad sectors and 3 weak sectors. Dealer installed identical new west. Digital hd under continued warranty on feb 24. Nice of them to do that. Same software installed on 2nd feb hd. 2nd feb hd partitoned same as oct hd.

2nd feb hd lasted until feb 28. Same symptoms. Ran start up repair. Problems identified:

Problem signature 01: 0. 0. 0. 0
02:  0. 0. 0. 0
03:  unknown
04:  0
05:  unknown
06:  1
07:  unknown

Attempted re-install. Got license terms. Clicked custom installation. No partitions showing, no drives found.

Ran start up repair again. Windows cannot repair automatically.

Diagnosis and repair details:
Session details:
System disk =  blank
Windows directory =  blank
Autockru=  0
Number of root causes = 1

Test performed:
Check for updates
Result :  completed successfully  error code = 0x0

Test performed:
System disk test
Result:  completed successfully  error code = 0x0

Root case found:
A hard disk could not be found. If a hard disk is installed, it is not responding.

Ran bootrec /scanos - total identified windows installations: 0
Ran bootrec /fixboot - the system cannot find the path specified.
Ran /fixmbr - defaulted back to options listing with no results being displayed.

Why the f- do the brand new hd's keep corrupting repeatedly?  The statistical probability of there being manufacturing defects in 3 hd's built months apart are about the same as winning the power ball lottery.

The only installed game has an autosave feature that saves the game every 10 minutes.could an incompatibility between windows 7 and the old game be the problem?

Error Message - Missing Or Damaged Dll File - Msvcr71.dll

When i boot my computer, the following error message displays each and every time: "the program can't start because msvcr71.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. Exactly what is this error message, how did i begin receiving it and what can i do to fix it.

I've seen numerous so called "fixes" but i am very leary of just downloading anything that says, "i can fix your problem" because you never know who you can trust when it comes to the internet. This is the reason i came here w/my issue. Can anyone help me with this? If so, i really appreciate you and your time obviously, this is a missing dll file problem but i am not certain as to what is the best thing to do to right the wrong.

Files Getting Corrupted

Okay i have had a new gateway computer from best buy since mid march. Many a times later a week or two on boot the computer wishes to run disk checker to to root out inconsistencies in the c drive partition? Well i allowed it to run and it began deleting windows files! Now i took it to best buy and they said they used a factory default disk at the expense of wiping all of the files i had accumulated and transferred. I made a factory default disc and i have had to use it many times now because windows 7 has failed to execute.

Now i  am unsure as of what causing this problem but i ran my trial of norton that came installed on it and my free avast antivirus as well as avg there are files that they cannot scan and the five files are all relating to the windows folder in the c: drive. Every one keeps telling me to factpry default the computer but i have five times and it wanted to dick check even after i ran it for a week with no internet connection. So its not a virus. If you have any idea as of how i can fix the problem i would appreciate it.

Driver Is Corrupted Code 39

I lost the dvd-rom icon on my computer. The device manager says the driver is corrupted code 39 but when i do an auto fix it can't fix it. I bought an e machines et1831-03 a few days ago. It worked great until yesterday when i clicked on "computer" and the dvd icon was gone, only the hard drive icon was there. I went to device manager and checked the dvd and it said the driver was corrupted, code 39. I tried to do an auto fix but it did not work. How can i obtain this driver and fix the problem?

What can i do? Please let me know soon.

External Hdd Corrupted

I use 2 external 250gb hdd's with my laptop to backup files from the office server and desktop machine. One evening i left in a hurry and closed the lid and hurriedly removed all usb devices. When reconnecting the drives (to the same laptop) i did not pay attention to the usb ports and in fact they were connected opposite to original. After working for a while i tried to access the external hdd's but was unable to. I tried swapping the drives around but it seems too late.

One of the drives could not be accessed at all and i am currently trying to recover important live files from it. The other drive reported that the recycle bin of the drive was corrupt and i accepted the message to "repair". I still cannot access the files on that drive and may have to go through the file recovery process on that one too, unless there are any suggestions?

Error - The Files Are Either Corrupted Or Nonexistent

Error: "the files are either corrupted or nonexistent" when tried to decrypt the drive using bitlocker on windows 7. Bitlocker encryption interupted. So after installing windows 7 ultimate, i tried encrypting my external hard drive with bitlocker. Unfortunately, i started it without adjusting my laptops power saving guidelines, and my laptop went into hibernate mode after 30 minutes.

Now, i have already tried unlocking it by normal means, but when i enter my password it says that the files are either corrupted or nonexistent, and when i tried doing the forgot password, the only other option i could find, and entered the id that bitlocker gave me, it said that it was not a valid id. Seeing as how i copied and pasted the id to a word document, and copied and pasted that into the text line, i am now out of ideas on how to get my hard drive to unlock.

I had just bought it less than 6 months ago, a 1tb western digital my book, so would really like to not have to buy another new one. I tried doing the windows desktop help search but it only told me to do what i already did, and after doing multiple google searches i did a forum search here and saw that there were no posts about this problem.

Dvd Device Got Lost Or Corrupted

I an using win7 pro and my dvd device no longer shows up with all my other devices and drives in the "computer" window. Thus when i try to read a dvd the system no longer recognizes the device as available (or existing?) On my system, whereas yesterday it worked fine. I tried the ms diagnostic but that returned no error? How do i fix this problem? [I presume if it was dust in the dvd this would show as a read error, but at least the device would show up as existing?

Unsigned Or Corrupted Atheros Wireless Driver

I have an asus laptop with an atheros ar9285 wireless network adapter and it works fine with the current driver v. 8. 0. 0. 144 but when windows update activates, it wants to install a newer driver. This is the "important" update according to the info. When it downloads, the driver will not work and additional wireless adaptor driver, the microsoft mini-usb wireless adapter, is installed and that will not work either. To fix, i roll back the driver for the ar9285 and it is good. The only problem is that this occurs every time windows update occurs. Is there any way to remedy this or am i stuck going through this process each time?

Bios Install / Corrupted Hard Drive

I need help. I've been trying both disks to boot from cd-rom. And they are both not reading at all. I have tried disabling caches, and different boot priorities. I cannot go into windows itself because of "blue screen of death".
Although, i can get into command prompt with windows 98 on the other hard-drive.

-Windows xp corrupted(blue screen of death)

-Cd-rom drive does not read windows 7 disk(went through bios)

-Windows 98 command prompt works(but can not boot into safe mode/normal mode due to missing information)

-Tried both 32-bit/64bit windows 7 disks

Can anyone help? Been at this for 2 hours now, and i cannot find anyone with the right information. Im stumped.

Ms Office Corrupted After Removing Antivirus Program

I had a fake anti-virus removed from my laptop using malwarebytes but it didn't work and then i used fake anti-virus removal program and that seem to do the job. Plus other sites were recommending to also use combofix as well, so i did.

Now my laptop can't get windows update to install and the yellow shield after so many attempts can not install the updates and keeps popping up. And also ms office programs were removed from from start menu and trying to re-install or remove ms office it won't let me.

So i'm trying to solve this. I have tried the system restore but the fake anti-virus deleted all my prior restore points and at one time i couldn't even access the restore even under safe mode.
I don't have an old copy of an old registry to try to replace i was wondering if there is a program that would release ms office to uninstall and to have windows update work again and install the updates.

Problem After Fixing A Corrupted User Profile

Today i followed the ms directions for fixing a corrupted user profile for windows 7 (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile), which was recommended to resolve certain issues with ms office failing to update. After following the instructions and logging into the new profile (after copying the indicated files from the old profile), i receive the following error message when i try to open explorer or anything that invokes explorer (documents, control panel, pictures, etc. ):  "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.

You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. "Some other apps open normally, such as word (although it opened as a new install, stepping me through initial setup), but other apps throw a variety of errors. The error does not occur in other user profiles, including the old profile. I'd appreciate any help.

Dual Boot - Move Boot Image To Second Drive

I have a problem with two different drives both running win7, one 32 the other drive64, on a dual boot system. I want to pull the win32 drive, but it also has my boot information for the win64 drive. When removed it will not boot. I have been working on this for 5-6 weeks. I want to remove the win7/32 and put the boot image of win7/64 on the second drive.

I booted from the win764 install dvd, and went to there pair your computer. The placethat displays the operating systems installed, none will show. I have tried bootsect from the command prompt. It seems to work, but tells me no partition on the second drive. Or on another attribute used, it can not find the path to the drive. I have tried rebuild bcd, fixmbr, etc.

Boot Takes Minutes, Will Boot In Safe Mode

When i booted up this arvo, the computer took 15 minutes to get to the log in screen. Upon clicking the profile image, i had to wait another 5 minutes of unresponsiveness for even the desktop background to display. Rebooted 3-4 times, still happened, booted in safe mode, (which is how i'm writing this) and initially thought it was msmpeng.exe that was causing me issues, so i removed mse once i finally managed to get it going in normal mode. I thought the problem was fixed when i rebooted, and i had about 4-5 minutes of normal speeds before it slowed right down and became unresponsive.

When the computer is running, the actual computer itself sounds fine (hard disk is chattering away) but when going slow and unresponsive it only makes noises every 1-2 seconds, if that makes any sense, as if it's under a really heavy load. Hard to tell because i cant open anything. Ran a system restore, didn't do anything. I need help soon! I suspect a driver issue, but i'm just speculating. Specs: windows 7 home premium 64 bit 6gig ddr3 ram i7-860 cpu ati 5770 gpu

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at all.microsoft support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?

Update Installed Driver Corrupted Usb Hub

This afternoon i let microsoft update install some updates that were listed as "optional". Suddenly things stopped working. I realized they were things connected to my usb hub, a 7-port belkin f4u047. Windows now thinks it's a bluetooth adapter. The specific drivers are in system32driversthport.sys, bthusb.sys, and fsquirt.exe. I can't remove and reinstall. I can't delete the drivers, update or rollback. I can't find a way to uninstall the update. It shows up in update history, but is not available in add/remove programs.

I'm stumped. What do i do?

New Sata Boot Drive Wont Boot

I have a new 2t sata drive (seagate). It took about 5 days of research to finally get my computer to see it. I used seagate's disk wizard to clone my older drive (ide). The sata drive was supposed to become the c: drive. Disk management does label it as the c drive but in "computer" it sees it as f:i disconnected my older drive and when i booted up the bios kept looking for the ide drive. Although the motherboard has sata built in, there seems to be no way to tell the bios that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive.

Also with the original drive disconnected i get a "ntldr not found. Press control-alt-delete to restart. "I believe mybios is the problem. I have flashed it with the newest bios i could find, (dates from 2005) but no sata adjustments in the bios. How can i make the bios know that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive?

Or is there a way to trick the bios into thinking that it is an ide drive? As it is, the computer is recognizing the sata drive as a scsi drive. I read somewhere that this is not a problem. In summary, i want my system to boot from the sata drive. I would like to reformat the original drive.

Boot Problem - No Boot Device Found

Each time i start up the system the boot file cannot be found. I select the "repair start up" option and it completes it successfully with following detail: root cause found: the partition table does not have a valid system partition. Repair action: partition table repair.completion successfully. After this the system will start up. As mentioned, i have to do this at every start up, so i'm wondering why this partition table disappears when i shut down the desktop. I should mention that this problem started at the time i downloaded and installed the true image backup software.

The installation could not complete and one possible solution to the problem was to stop the antivirus program. At that moment i noticed that the avast antivirus was hanging and i was not able to kill the process. So i restarted the system, using f8 to get the safe start option so that i was able to uninstall the antivirus program. I then tried to install another antivirus application and when installation was almost finished got the message that it was unable to complete installation. I tried to install another backup solution (paragon), but also this one failed. On the other hand, i was able to install the firefox browser.
