This is Ron. Rockmilk asked me to look at your problem.
Turn on boot logging using msconfig but don't reboot yet:

Start, All Programs, Accessories then right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator. Then type (with an Enter after each line).
(This will check your critical system files. Does this finish without complaint? IF it says it couldn't fix everything then:
Copy the next two lines:
findstr /c:"[SR]" \windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log > \windows\logs\cbs\junk.txt
Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator, Continue. Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied line should appear.
