The other night I was having problems with my virtual memory on my home computer. I was told to increase the RAM and I did so. Yesterday I tried to start it up again and as I was logging on to Windows XP, I got a message that I was out of virtual memory. I have also been getting an Explorer.exe Appliction error. The message says the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142) Click on OK to Terminate the application. Sometimes it will not take me to my desktop and sometimes it will. But the only thing I get on my desktop is by wallpaper. No applications, no window bar. My screensaver works and I can Control Alt Delete into Task Manager but I have no idea what to do from there. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
