Hi michald...

I think the issue lies elsewhere, but let's check the files and the file system first off.

Click Start then Run...type cmd and press "Enter". At the command prompt, type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour).

Then click Start, Run, type cmd and press "Enter". At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r (Again...note the space) and press "Enter" When told the volume is busy and asked if you want to run this check on the next boot, type Y and press "Enter". Reboot. This will take a while...be patient.

Does this help the problem?
