I'm having a similar start up problem, but all i get when it's all done
working is a blank destop (except for wallpaper). ctrl+alt+delete still
works though. Basically my particular explorer.exe application error
0xc0000142 problem started only after scanning for and removing spyware
(i used aol spyware remover, spysweeper, spybot search and destroy,
yahoo's anti-spy program, and ad-aware to fix the culprits) that
infected my computer last night. I'm thinking it's something i
inadvertently deleted.

I do not have McAfee, however.
