OK restart the system from the recovery console
Select command prompt
Type the following command :

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows

This will check and reset all windows files

OK that means it did not work

From safe mode could you run an elevated command prompt

Go start > All Programs > Accessories
Right click command prompt and select run as administrator
In the black box type :

sfc /scannow

This should take at least 5 minutes to run

I had run the restore from the flash drive and although it said it did not complete I went to run the scf but had to restart the laptop and let it start normally and it has come on and says restore was successful
