Windows 7: W7U Cannot boot due to 0x80070002 error

W7U Cannot boot due to 0x80070002 error

Hi folks. Hope this is posted in the right place. Long time lurker but first problem which I require help with. I work from home and losing $$$ due to this error.

Critical updates were installed for my Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit desktop yesterday, today I put the computer on and just after the Windows loading screen I receive a Bluescreen for a millisecond before computer immediately restarts. I am them prompted to do a repair when computer restarts which after many minutes brings up the error message 0x80070002. The computer is a self build and has been fine for 3 years but this appears to be a major problem. I cannot afford to lose my files (most are backed up but not all since I only back up every month to an external drive). From the repair screen, I have tried to restore the computer before critical updates were installed (what I feel is causing the problem) but the restore point fails. I cannot enter the desktop and now the startup repair simply hangs.

I really hope someone can help me with this as I'm at the end of my tether. Many thanks.
