Explorer fails to initialize

When I start up my computer, it gives me this message:
"The application failed to initialize properly (oxc0000005). Click on OK to
terminate the application."
It won't let me get into the control panel to do anything about it, so I'm
having to browse through and find every program and run it through the task
manager whenever I need to do something, and some things will not run. Does
anybody have any ideas why this might happen, and/or how to fix it? It
happened after the latest updates were installed(I don't know which ones they
were, they automatically installed) on Thursday, May 12th. Please help!
Thanks!

There is a known issue:-

I don't know if it be the issue for you.As you get similar error from
Kazaa file shairing or, it may be from faulty memory.


If you want to check the memory there are free programs here:
