explorer.exe fails to start with error 0xc000007b; no apparent ways of fixing


  • Hi, everybody. I've been having some issues with my computer recently, and I haven't found a viable solution yet. explorer.exe isn't able to start up, with the error 0xc000007b. All of the normal solutions I've come across don't work.

    I have seen multiple instances where sfc /scannow fixes the problem, but it doesn't work: "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service."

    To worsen things even more, all System Restore points are apparently corrupted. I've tried restoring on [i]every single point I possibly could[/i] to no avail.

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a desktop. There's not much more info I can get without explorer.exe; sorry.
