Well, that is a new one on me. Type in "msconfig" on that run line, if you don't mind, and copy and paste your "boot.ini" file, please?

Do that SFC with the cd you do have. I don't know why it is asking for a pro cd, but if you know that is your cd, use it. Your computer "thinks" it's a Home, and that's what matters.

Also right click on the network icon, or go into Network Properties and choose to "repair connection". I think you may have clicked on the desktop, not the notification area network icon Looks like two monitors in the bottom right and kinda blinks when it is working) Let us know.
