A couple weeks ago when trying to boot up my computer, I got the black screen with the mouse clicker and this error message: The application failed to initialize properly. (0xc0000033)

I tried several ways to restore it back to a previous working time, but nothing worked. I was able to get all the files saved that I wanted saved and them took the computer back to the way it was when I received it. Now I can't get online. I have a Charter Cable modem and it's working...works just fine when I hook it to the laptop. I've also tried upgrading to Windows 7 with a CD, but now the CD drive doesn't seem to be working. Any help or suggestions on how to get the online issue corrected would be great!

I'd like you to read some of the errors in the event viewer so we can troubleshoot this further.

To enter the event viewer, right click my computer, click manage, expand event viewer and click system. After having clicked system, the right side should populate. Spend a moment, and get a feel for things. I would like to see if there are any "red/errors" that might correspond to your problem. In order to know if they do, you need to double click the suspected items (one-by-one), and read them to make an evaluation. Feel free to copy and paste them here, either all at once, or one-by-one.

Ok, there are several red "X'S" in this list, all under sources DCOM, Service Control Manager and W32Time. When I click on them they all indicate the responses weren't in a timely fashion.

There are two different "Warnings:"

Source Dhcp: Your computer has automatically configured to the IP address for the network card with network address 00123FB4c40. The IP address being used is 169.254.24.139.

Source Remote Access: Unable to contact a DACP server. The Automatic Private IP Address 169.254.24.139 will be assigned to the dial-in clients. Clients may be unable to access resources on the network.

Download it, put it on a floppy or usb flash drive, then run it on the desktop.
