I turned off my computer last night and everything was working fine no problems at all.
When I turned it on this morning I got this error message and windows would not start up, I tried starting it in safe mode but got the same error and was still not able to get into windows, the screen just went black and had the error message on it. I have no idea how this happened or what to do, I cannot get into windows to run any virus scans, spyware scans etc or to do a system restore.
If you have any advice on what to do I would be very appreciative. It would be a blessing if I could resolve the issue without having to totally wipe the hard-drive as I have valuable information on it for work/college.

Hope to hear some good news soon,
Regards
ColinC

if you can get into your recovery console run the sfc / scannow syntax. This scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files. If the error still occurs and you have installed Service Pack 2 and have the
"ServicePackFiles" in the following location:::


c:\windows\servicepackfiles


then type the following in the run dialog box:


cmd /k copy %systemroot%\servicepackfiles\i386\ncobjapi.dll
%systemroot%\system32


The above command is all one line.


----
If you do not have the "ServicePackFiles" folder then insert your Windows XP
CD into the cd drive and type the following in the command prompt.


expand cddriveletter:\i386\ncobjapi.dl_ %systemroot%\system32


The above command is all one line.


----
You could also use the dllcache folder to replace the file. Type the
following in the Run dialog box:


cmd /k copy %systemroot%\system32\dllcache\ncobjapi.dll
%systemroot%\system32
