hal.dll was corrupt and I followed the procedure as Using the Recovery Console .

after I typed "bootcfg /default" R.C replied with the message "There are no boot entries, use '/add' or '/rebuild'". So I did that, but it then asked me , "enter Load Identifier..."? I did not know what to put in. so I typed '1', I also now know after it came up with the message "Enter OS"... I should have typed 'Windows Home edition' ,instead of help.

Now unfortunately I have 2 boot sectors , and
now windows sort of works ,but not the normal way. When it re-boots it comes up with
the black screen and message "do you want windows to load off "1"., or "help" , bugger.

Finally got back into my XP desktop ,but everything is now 12 times slower and Media Player 10 and Classic have become corrupt.

I then re-installed MediaPlayer 10 , but can now play some video ,but not all , I checked to see if all my drivers were still intact and yes they are. Also MediaPlayer10 and classic will not play full screen mode anymore, even after re-installing it. PowerDvD6 still runs all my videos OK in Full screen.

If anyone has any solutions how I can get the PC speed back ,and have MediaPlayer play videos again in full mode ,I would appreciate it.
Even just to bring up Explorer takes about a minute now, as before it took halve a second or something.
Also when I click to switch pc off ,it does not do this automatically anymore. It just comes up with the message "It is now safe to turn off your computer".
