Are you sure about the file name?
Can you access Repair your computer?
- Turn on the computer and start pressing F8 to access the boot menu like this:
- On the Startup Repair process click Cancel
- click Command Prompt on the System Recovery Options screen
- on the Command Prompt type the command:
chkdsk /R /x C:
Check Windows System files integrity
- type the following command and press Enter:
sfc /scannowNote: This may take some time to finish.
Restart the computer and let me know the result.

When I hit f8 there is no repair your computer at top to hit
In that case boot from the windows vista recovery CD you should be able to access the System Recovery Options also.
Before running a full sfc scan try this command:
If the command above give you any error try to run the full scan:

ok i had to buy a windows vista recovery/repair cd from neosmart technologies because i dont have original vista cd anymore. How do i access the command prompt from that?
Let me upload a Windows Vista RE for you... but I need to know first if windows is 32-bits or 64-bits.

I got to prompt and typed that in and it said "there is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again." Which I do the restart and it just reboots and comes right to the error page about kdcom.dll
We posted at the same time.
You got that "there is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete" when you typed which command?
Did you try sfc /scanfile=c:\windows\system32\kdcom.dll?

its 32 bit. I tried sfc /scanfile=c:\windows\system32\kdcom.dll and that's when I was told system had a pending repair
Ok, Lets try this:
On the Command Prompt type:
dism /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
Restart the system and access the Command Prompt like you did before, try the sfc command above to restore the kdcom.dll file.
