Unhappy 0xc0000022 vista explorer.exe

When I try to start up my laptop I am getting this error:
0xc0000022 application failed to launch.
And my desktop does not ever load.
If i press CTRL+ALT+DEL to load task manager, it gives the same error and does not load task manager either.
I have already tried system restore, and searching numerous forums for a fix,
however I have not yet been able to find a solution to this problem!
I am good with computers, but this issue has me stumped.
Also to note, this issue appears to have happened first reboot after installing Skype 5.1. Not sure if that has anything to do with it, but thought it worth mentioning. Also I have scanned with Malware bytes and it found no infections, I also run Outpost Security Suite Pro (Licensed Version).
I did try to install and run spybot search&destory, while using safemode (which does load), but spybot would not launch either and gave an error about sqlite.dll
I tried to uninstall Skype in safemode, but it tells me it can not be done insafe mode.
Also to mention one more time that I did try System Restore as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
