    example:
    "Explorer.EXE - Application Error
    The instruction at "0x5ad8c78d" referenced memory at "0x08c2c9c7". The memory could not be "read".

    Click on OK to terminate the program
    Click on Cancel to debug the program"

    Generally I am very good with this type of thing. BUt this does not occur solely with explorer. In fact it happens in just about every other application I try to open, making it very hard to troubleshoot. I THINK it started when i tried "patching" uxtheme.dll and possibly when I tried to install a theme but niether of them would open and I am not sure if this was the error that popped up or not. I cant get on the internet (cant open any browsers) on that computer and the numbers in the error are the same no matter what app it takes down. Ive have ran AVG (updated), Avast, ccleaner and i cant get anything else that i have to open (like hijack this or the control panel or anything). I dont have my windows installation disk anymore and I am wodneirng if there is any way around this without reinstalling, PLEASE HELP. thanks, -Zack-

    and the i cant delete the UXtheme.dll because it is in use? when i ran avast uxtheme came up in there twice i managed to delete on but i dont know what the hell im doing... so frustrated. uxtheme may have absolutely nothing to do with it.
