Unhappy "(null)is not a valid win 32 application"

Hi,

I have a problem in Windows XP as follows. When I click on the Taskbar and Star Menu or on Folder Options in the Control Panel I'm having this error "(null)is not a valid win 32 application" and I can't open neither one of them! I had tried sfc /scannow from Run Window but with no success! Is there any help please?

Thanks in advance.........

It looks like some files have become currupt on your hard disk. How old is your system/disk?

Yeah, maybe you deleted something that you needed by mistake?

It doesn't sound like a back to square one thing, just a reinstall-fix windows. Probably not a full Remastering.

Depends how old the Pooter is and whether you can remember whether you've fiddled with the files?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. The HD is only four months old and I tried system restore that was created about month ago when it was everything OK but nothing happened.
