I get an error message during boot up that says Crypt32.dll error, bad checksum, the image doesnt match the computed checksum or something on those lines.
Ive tried booting in safe mode, tried to do system restore, and tried to do a last known configuration. None of that works.
I burned some bootable disks and tried BitDefender, Kapersky Rescue CD, and Avira Rescue. Avira scanned my computer and found some errors in my Java application. It renamed the files but when I rebooted the computer I still get the same error message and BSOD. I also tried to use AVG Rescue Disc but I cant get the .exe file to write to my USB drive, and the CD wont boot.
I thought the hard drive might be done but I can see the programs noted above scanning my files, so I can see they are all still there.
I won this computer in a lottery at work as they were upgrading their equipment. It did not come with a Windows XP disc so I cant do a repair.
Any suggestions on how to get this computer back into shape and/or get my files off the hard drive?
Thanks in Advance!
