OK I tried the fix on my VM and it failed...

Next from safe mode could you create a new Admin user account and then try that in normal mode

From the Start menu, click Control Panel.

Double-click User Accounts, click Manage User Accounts, and then click Add... .

Enter a name and domain for the administrator account. Click Next > .

Select the radio button titled Other: , and from the drop-down menu, choose Administrators.

Click Finish, which will take you back to the User Accounts dialog box. Click OK.

Reboot to this new account, is the problem still apparent ?

At this stage all that remains is to do a re-install I am afraid... What is the make and model of the computer ? I will then see if there is a repair option rather than full reinstall

I have found a PDF version of your manual here

There does not appear to be an option to replace just the windows files I am afraid

Start your computer, and while it is starting press ALT F10 during startup.
This should bring a screen about recovery options,
When in the Recovery Panel, click 'Restore System from factory default'.
(Remember, this process will completly erase all data from your hard-drive, so if you do have access to your computer, you might want to back up important files on a C.D.)
After clicking Next, the process should start restoring everything to factory defaults.
This process may take several minutes to complete.
