    Anything on my desktop that i try to open, from My Documents, My Computer, the REcycle bin, any Folder on my desktop, i can't open at all. It says explorer has caused an error in Mfc42.dll. I can't even search for files at all. When i go through the start menu to search for the files, it gives me the same error message. I can't do anything. For about three days before this, it would only give me this message when i double clicked on the icon to open it. I could still get through by right-clicking and clicking "explore." Now, no matter how i try to open those icons, i can't get to them at all without the error message.

    Also, now that this problem is occuring, i can't get to my control panel either with out getting the Kernel32.dll error message. I really don't know much about how to fix these problems, as Im not as great with a computer as I want to be. Can someone help me with these problems?

    Also, it seems that all these functions work fine in Safe Mode.All other functions on my desktop such as AOL and any games i have still work fine, it's just these file folders and the my computer that is giving me the problem. Is there something corrupted or is there a conflicting file that is preventing these things to open? I can't even get to the My Computer or My Documents. Thanks...

    Thank you for your help! After a lot of frozen screens and reboots, the problem seems to have been alevieated, although I'm not entirely sure how it was done. If there is any more problems, i'l be sure to let you all know. THanks and glad to be here.
