|It's a registry issue. Tap F8 while booting and see if you can get to Command Prompt from the startup menu. If so follow this to run System Restore:|
If you make it, select a date before the problem came along. Have you been using a registry cleaner program by any chance?
There is another possibility. Sometimes a registry problem is mis-reported due to ram issues. Try cleaning the RAM edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser then pop the stick(s) in and out a few times to clear oxide off the sockets too.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
