Mprexe error at start up

by gjksn / August 16, 2006 4:19 AM PDT

I am having trouble when I start up my computer. I get a pop up message that reads

"Mprexe has caused an error in KERNEL32.DLL.Mprexe will now close."
"If you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer."

If I close the error message window my desktop goes black and everything locks up. I can't even "ctrl alt delete" to restart it. It will let me log on if I ignore the error message window. I am able to get online and such but everything (desktop, internet) starts having problems and eventually freezes.
Any suggestions on how to fix this will be greatly appreciated.

So few clues, no Windows version. Link only.

I got a whole list of stuff to try from the link you gave me. Hopefully one of them will do the trick.

Thanks again

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
