stop error c0000135

the pc gets to win 7 logo, bsod, then loops back to attemp to restart. safe modes do not work. the code is c0000135 'the program cant start because %hs is missing from your computer. try re installing the program.' there is no indication of what program it may be. many reference i have read relate to avg, which this pc does not have. i can boot it with a win7 repair disk, but the options so far are no help. i can boot with knoppix live, and viewing files from there shows no avg. other read suggestions, bios setting-all seem okay, corrupt dll. i prefer not to reinstall if possible.i can get to a command prompt with the repair cd.have tried kaspersky rescue 10-nothng found. lend me your thoughts/suggestionsmay be a little difficult to access the mini dumps if i cant boot the pc.

I have not even tried to get to the installed recovery options yet. thus far, while attempting a normal boot, i can access bios and boot options. recovery option would be from this point. i have not tried that. i will if no other possibilities for fixing the current install are found. thanks for that info.
