Windows is missing or has a damaged file.

First, click start then run and type sfc /scannow (make sure there is a space between the c and the /) let it scan and it should find and fix the problem.

Restart the system and see if it worked,

I have just tried that it came up with a message" insert SP2 disc " which I don't have since computer came with operating system pre-installed so I went on the net and downloaded SP2 making sure I got the right one the message then changed and said I had inserted the wrong disc
