I cannot start Windows in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking--but I can start Windows in Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Once when I rebooted, my OS suggested I run chkdsk, and it found lots and lots of corrupted files and indexes. However, when it finished, the same situation existed--no change.
I found previous forum topics that dealt with this same issue, and I was able to run a copy of Smitrem.exe from a CD on the affected machine via the Command Prompt--however, after having run the Smitrem, the situation is the same. I cannot access the Smitrem results .txt file to post it without some help (I'm not that good with the Command Prompt commands).
Not sure what my next move is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
