First, restart your computer and then keep pressing F8 button rapidly and you should see Advanced Boot Options menu which looks like this: Once you see that menu, select Repair Your Computer option and press Enter. Wait a while and follow the on-screen instructions. You should get to the window that has several repair options, including Startup Repair, as shown on this image: So, click on Startup Repair which should fix all found startup problems.
Once it has finished, your computer should restart and operate normally. However, if it is still the same, repeat the instructions to go back to System Recovery Options window, but now select System Restore: When you click on System Restore, follow the on-screen instructions where you can choose one restore point based on a date to revert system settings back to that date (when all worked fine). Wait for the process to finish and it will automatically restart a computer. Hopefully, your problem will be gone. Don't worry about your personal files as they won't be affected by System Restore.
OK, here is the first part of the instructions. Basically, you need to copy a working back up of comctl32.dll file to your computer.1. Use another working computer to download a bootable BartPE CD. Here is the DOWNLOAD LINK2. Next, download a working copy of comctl32.dll file on THIS LINK3. You will also need an image burning program. I recommend Free ISO Burner which can be downloaded on THIS LINK4. Install Free ISO Burner and wait until the bootable CD has been downloaded5. Let me know what this is all downloaded/installed
Yes it is! crazy! thank you!
