  1. Stop using commands in the Dos box.

    You will need to do a Repair of your OS. Easiest way is to insert your installation disk at desktop then do an UPGRADE. Your current files will not be deleted.

    I'm guessing you already tried running them directly from System 32. (if not go there and see)
    Also, try a chkdsk (/f, /r) from cmd.
    Or try a SFC /scannow in start>run.

    Ok, now look in Event Viewer to anything related, so maybe we can figure out what's related to.

    Do they do the same in Safe mode?
    I don't usually recommend this, but as a last option, U can try replacing them and their *.dll files.
    They should be found on Win XP cd, and maybe backups on your PC too.
    I know the *.dll 's of them could be found in Dll Cache folder, once you change in Folder options the "Show hidden files", and uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files" U can see the Dll Cache folder in System 32.

    also, post if U find anything in Event Viewer!

    :hello:


  4. i think even Component Services, Computer Management, Event Viewer, Services, Performance, Local Security Policy and my Data Sources won't show windows... double clicking does not do anything... anyone know how to fix these sort of problem... :D
