STOP:c000135 {unable to locate component} ... USER32.dll RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I was running IE7 and was receiving an error message 0x0eedfade.  I decided to upgrade to IE8, and when the computer rebooted, I can now no longer start up windows.  I had been running windows XP home edition.  Since the upgrade to IE8, each time i start up the computer, the Windows XP screen appears with the scrolling bar, and then it goes black and nothing else happens.  I have tried pressing and holding F8, and when I attempt to start up wiht the last known good congifuration, it goes black again.  When I attempt to start up in safe modes, it gives me a blue screen that shows: Stop: C000135 {unable to locate component} and that USER32.dll could not be located.

    Is it possible that the upgrade to IE8 caused this?  If not, what could have?  This started with the first reboot after the upgrade.  Also I have never run the AVG software.  

    How can I fix this and get windows to start up?  I can't run system restore because I cant get windows to start up.  I cant get a dos prompt to appear because I cant get a command prompt to appear because when I start in safe mode it goes to the blue screen.

    I have inserted the disk that came with the computer for windows (it is green, not metalic and shiney like the Microsoft Office CD).  But it doesnt do anything when I restart the computer with the disk installed.
