Shoot. I wish I knew what that basic repair did so we could work around it.

 

Ensure there is nothing plugged into your computer. Disconnect everything (accept the power of course). Try starting again.

 

If you get the same issue, try booting into Safe Mode again to see if it can get in this way.

 

Let me know. Thanks.

Good. This gives us a few options.

 

1. Click your Start button and type restore in the Search box.

2. Click on System Restore that comes up.

3. Click Next on the first screen.

4. Which Restore points are listed? What is the Date and Time and Description of these?

That's the screen I was trying to get you to in Post#26 so we could replace the file. Go ahead and choose that and we'll see if we can look at System Restore options from here.

 

You will be prompted for a keyboard layout and possibly asked to put your password in.

 

Then you will have a screen where one of the options is System Restore. Click Next on the first screen and then let me know the Date and Time & Description of the restore points that you have.
