OK I see the issue. When you are sitting at \windows\system32 type in
cd codeintegrity then click Enter
Make sure you have the spaces in between cd and codeintegrity

Type in dir *.cache and then Enter
Does it now give you a list of files ending in .cache

entering dir*.cache from the x:\Windows\System32\CodeIntegrity> prompt yields "'dir*.cache' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

entering it from the C:\> prompt yields the same result


EDIT: I have to sign off for a few hours, have to take the wife to dinner... tried to tell her this is more important but she's not buying it!! Thanks for the help so far, as usual you guys rock!! I'll be back to checking in in a few hours, thanks again.

So am I looking at a bigger issue than just the cache? Should I be looking at a new HD?

Well we can test the HD to make sure by doing the following.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, try the Hitachi DFT CD Image version of the software

Thanks to Broni for the instructions

You should as long as the floppy if that is what you are using is useable on a PC. Do you not have a rewritable cdrom disk as that would work better.
Make sure what you download is for floppy or it will be to big to fit.

There should be setting in your burning software to burn so it will work on a PC.

Then the issue is not the HD as I suspected.
Lets try a Repair Installation or Startup Repair as it is known as for Win7.
