It appears that you have major problems - if that output was correct, I'd be surprised that the machine boots at all!
Unfortunately my post was full of typos and I missed the critical corrections.

Here's the corrected version

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands

sc sdshow plugplay
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-18" /S
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-19" /S
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-20" /S

Copy and paste the results to your reply

Here are some instructions to make life easier

1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.

2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at topleft – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.

3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit...'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

Those answers look normal - but please use the copy/past procedure from my earlier posts to post the results, as it reduces bandwidth and doesn't miss anything if the data rolls off the current screen.

We'll have to look elsewhere for the problem then...

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt ad run the following commands:

REG QUERY HKU
REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-18
REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-19
REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-20

Post the results

Those look normal as well - let's go back to basics and gather some general diagnostics...


Pleasefollow the WindowsUpdate Posting Instructions and postthe requested data



If thefile is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files untilthe final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately afterzipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for anumber of reasons)



Pleasealso post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

ALSO


Open Event Viewer

click on theWindows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.

Now click on theApplication entry - wait while it loads.

Click on 'File'in the menu bar and select Save...

Save the file asAppevt.evtx

Repeat for theSystem log

then zip both,and upload them.

It looks to me as if you uploaded shortcuts rather than the needed files... please try again.
