Yeah that was the thread i tried previously, it seems you need an sp1 retail disk, mine is from release so doesnt contain sp1 when i try to repair install it just says my os is a newer version

Ran startup repair off my retail disk, all tests passed but cannot login still, and still stuck booting into safe mode

Edit ahh on second look step 5 may be the answer, do you know of any cmd command i can use to boot into normal mode instead of safe mode so i can try that?

Hi,

Just thinking about this for a minute.....have you ever tried an sfc /scannow to attempt a repair of system files?

If not, it may be easier than a Repair Install. Follow this and see how you go:

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If may be neccessary run it 2 or 3 times, depending on the state of the system file corruptions.

Golden

Yeah i ran it almost endlessly via the cmd prompt on the retail disk, it did fix some stuff the first time corrupted files etc, but nothing else the following times.

I cannot run it anymore as it says it is waiting for Reboot for a repair to take place, but i cannot make it reboot as i cannot boot.

Just seem to be stuck, i used msconfig to get into safe mode on boot, and now i am stuck in limbo as safe mode does not get past the login screen so i cannot set it back to non safe mode

Ouch....OK, you need the big guns for this. I'll ask BFK to have a look at this for you when he has the time. Sit tight.

Some times when you remove a program the changes the program has done do not get put back the way Windows 7 want them to be. When you get on your computer use the sfc /scannow as Golden has posted. I have found on my computers sfc /scannow does great things and doesn't take long, plus it can't hurt.

Ahahahahaha

Managed to get into safe mode on the 100th ish time lol switched it back to normal bootmand will try repair install followed by another sfc scannow

Thanks for your help hopefully that should solve it.

My guess is that soluto changed something in a windows setting and didnt unchange it once i got rid of soluto, hopefully doing the repair install will put things right

Also, just a quick Q, what are you guys thoughts on ssd? In the medium tolong term when affordable i want to install windows onto a ssd, is this worth doing?

Since i havent reinstalled the os from scratch since vista was released i will need to at some point, so may as well try to keep it upto date?

Hi,

Good stuff - get those sfc's run a few times.

SSD? Lets put it this way, it is by far, without a shadow of a doubt, the single best way to dramatically speed up your system, I could, and would, never go back to classic spinner disks for OS and applications.

SSD'S are like drugs, once you have one you will want more.

Thanks for the help and advice in this topic.

I tried repair install but for some reason after 14 hours it was still on the second step. I have ordered a 60gb ssd and will reinstall onto their when it arrives (hopefully tomorrow)
