As an interim step I suggest you load with your installation disk and go to "Repair my computer". Maybe it can fix the .dll.

If that does not work, load the DVD again and go to Command Prompt. There you type sfc /scannow and hit enter (note the space in front of the slash).

If none of that helps, we'll try something else.

What programme can't start?

Does sfc /scannow start and run to completion?

You have to run startup/repair 3 times.

It is also recommended that you reboot between each attempt at a startup repair.

Also, it can take a long time depending how badly affected your system is. It has been known for a startup repair to take days rather than hours - I did see a figure of three-and-a-half days quoted recently!!

In that scenario a clean install would be a better option.
