Might try sfc.exe /scannow

Might have to perform repair buy booting to cd and follow the instructions for repair. Not install.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I tried your idea and it didn't work. I used sfc.exe /scannow and it worked. Thanks for your idea though. It is filed away.

I don't know where my mind was. I tried the sfc.exe /scannow which is what you recommended and it didn't work. Now I can't remember the program I used that worked. I will remember though and I'll post it here.

Ok, here is how I did it. Click Start, Computer, left click drive c, properties, tools, error checking [check now], check both boxes and click start, click yes, do a restart, and leave the room for several hours. Worked great. Thanks again for your support.
