Try to boot in to safe mode to see if you get the same problem (F8 on start-up) and failing that, in the help & support center you can use system restore to go back in time when the problem did not occur...have you installed new software recently? OLE32.DLL may have become unregistered - search the system to see if the file actually exists, if it does, go to a command prompt and type regsvr32 ole32.dll to reregister the .DLL
