When windows starts loading I get a message that says: The procedure entry point IsWellKnownSid could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll. I click OK then another messsage imediately pops up saying the system process c:\windows\system32\services.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 128 and windows shuts down after one minute.
I tried starting in safe mode to see if I could remove all the hot fixes and dow windows update again but the same thing still happens. I also tried starting with a previous configuration but made no difference.
I checked the microsoft web site and the only possible solution they came up with requires using regedit but not being able to finish bootting pretty much made that impossible. At this point would like to know if there is anything I can do or if anybody thinks it would just be best to re-install windows and start over.
