Hi All

Just returned to my pc while I was out and found it had restarted.

Now when I boot it up I get the following errors:

Windows Logon LogonUI.exe

c:\windows\system32\rtrutils.dll and

c:\windows\system32\POWRPROF.dll

saying that these files are damaged or corrupt

once I click OK to these I get a black screen with white mouse pointer

system was working fine with all updates / scans etc

System: Vista Business, 2gb DDR2, 320 GB SATA2 HDD

I have tried running a last known good, safe mode, chkdsk and a startup repair but no avail

any ideas what causes this and how to fix it?

I'm booting of my UBCD4WIN USB drive just now

regards

Can you boot to Startup Repair (either using the Safe Mode menu or your installation DVD)?
If so, try Startup Repair. If that doesn't work, then try System Restore to set your system back a day or two.

Is it rtrutils.dll, or rtutils.dll?
The first one is NOT a legit file, the latter is.

Hi There

Thanks for the replies guys.

Probably just my typing.

And I tried startup repair from my DVD but no joy. I just restored from an Acronis drive image and was back up and running in no time. Didn't want to spend all night on it.

But if anyone has any ideas what causes or how to repair this I'd be glad to hear it.

Thanks again
