Regarding to the people who still have the COMCTL32.dll error, here is the fix for restore correctly the DLL file. If you can't boot in your PC step to number 5.
In my case i found that the system have multiples COMCTL32.dll files along Windows folder with different sizes.
I run SFCfix witch has a very similar function of the windows SFC, this program attempts to fix the errors that Windows SFC can't fix by restoring them from your Windows DVD. Simply run the SFCfix and when asked insert Windows DVD.
When SFCfix stop scanning for errors it shows the report and in my case i found that 2 COMCTL32.dll were still corrupted/missing at Winsxs folder.
5) In my case the report shows that the corrupted DLL files were here:
In the first folder it was a file, and in the second folder no file was there.
Since the COMCTL32.dll files are all different i get these files from the respective folders of a fresh windows and i copied them to a USB Pen. I also copy the manifest files witch have the same name of the folders and are located at C:\Windows\winsxs
In order to Paste these (4) files,since Windows don't let you to this, you need to boot with a LIVE CD like Ubuntu and copy the COMCTL32.dll files to the respective folders and the manifest files to C:\Windows\winsxs.
After this, I reboot windows in safe mode and i made the registration of the DLL files simply running CMD with Administration rights. Type this in CMD:
At least one of this commands will be succeed.
In the link above are the files i used to both foldes.

This is not the most easy fix but i found that is the only one.
After this i reboot and start windows again in safe mode anxdfollowed panda instructions over here and all get normal again:
1. Download the following zip file (password: panda)
2. Run the resulting folder in the affected PC
3. Open cmd as admin
4. Sc stop psinprot
5. Sc stop psinaflt
6. Sc stop nanoservicemain
7. From the cmd window, browse in the extracted folder to the path “ quarantinefix\tool “ and run testerNano.exe
The cmd window will close. The process is silent, the testerNano.exe won’t be seen on the task manager, so please wait a few seconds for the tool to finish, and then you can go to the quarantine folder to check there are no files there.
Please, let us know if you have any additional problem.
This SFC method may be applied for others DLL files, you only need to detect them and replace it with files from a fresh Windows installation from a PC that you may have.
Do this at your own responsibility.
I am not clear on what you say is step #5? I have a PC running Windows Vista. It won't boot into safe mode, or to the command prompt. Selecting any of the options available the system just goes to a black screen. You have to hold in the PC's reboot button to restart to try again, to no avail.
Sorry for the confusion Try to follow Camelgroup post Fri, 13 Mar 2015, 16:41
If you need the SFCfix just find it on Google, panda can't solve problems of their mess but can delete files that can restore systems to life (the file i upload).
