Hello and Welcome to MyTechSupport.ca

How would you like to restore it? Are you trying to use System Restore and it will not work? Are you trying to do a repair installation or do you want to wipe it out completely?

Take a look at the link I provided in my last reply. If it does not help, Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow   ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.
