Extension CLSID Verification Host has stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had so many errors on this Vista Business I relented and did a factory restore from frustration.  Now a whole new set of problems.  That message clsid verification host has stopped working is forever coming up, the com surrogate message is coming up, error reporting has stopped working is coming up and I cant access many things in control panel as it says it cant find them.  I cant put on index searching either as it just wont do it and Im about to throw this laptop in the bin (well not really but Im close).  I had tried running sfc but it gets to 70% and no further.  I cant find my original disk although have the acer recovery one here they gave me to put the system back to XP (but no instructions how to use this disc hence I havent done it).

    Any suggestions?
