Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

When starting up Windows XP - the process stops and I get the message C0000135 application failed because user32.dll wasnot found. I have tried to start in safe mode but the same problem re-appears. ie: computer will not start in safe mode. Any suggestions, please.


Answers :

I've just seen this on another users pc, here is how i solved it:

Start from your xp disk (recovery disk that you got with your machine or retail copy of xp), when prompted go into recovery mode (press r at the menu)

when in the recovery mode go to c:\\windows\\$NtServicePackUninstall$ and type

copy user32.dll c:\\windows\\system32\\

then type 'exit' without quotes to reboot

your system will now boot up fine

(note there may be a copy of the user32.dll file in c:\\windows\\system32\\dllcache\\ as well)
