hi. i was working on a old windows me computer yesterday. i was uninstalling not needed programs and updating windows with windows update. after the windows update i restarted the computer only to get this error message "Error loading EXPLORER.EXE. You must reinstall Windows." when i click on "ok" the computer shuts down. i followed microsofts instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306599 . and the problem still occurs. i uploaded my system.ini file in a .txt format if anyone can look at it and tell if its correct. the only program i uninstalled was norton antivirus, i used symantecs removal tool, that is supposed to completely uninstall norton products. then i updated windows. anyone have any ideas? thanks.
