Went and looked at the computer from my other post today.  It would load up and stop at Verifying DMI Pool Data...and not load up any further.  Booted up with a boot disk and tried to fix the Master Boot Record when I got to the Sys C: command and it says Data Error reading Drive C Abort, Retry, Fail.  Tried running Scandisk and it says Cannot examine Drive C.  Tried to boot into Safe Mode but at first it wouldn't.  Went in and ran scanreg from boot disk and it said the registry was ok.  So loaded from a previous backup and it finally went into safe mode.  There was no conflicts in device manager or anything.  Eveytime I tried to open a program to see if they would work it gave that the program had a DLL error on every program with a different DLL file.  Any suggestions?

Two things come to mind. A mangled partition or virus damage (or possibly both). Either way, I would slave the hd to another machine, backup whatever data is needed (possibly using data recovery software) and delete partition(s), reformat (including fdisk\mbr) and install os. Obviously you would want to scan any backed up data before transfering it back. Wink This could be many things but I suspect damage to the partition. I'm suggesting a method which will guarantee results and probably only take an hour or two to be 100% restored. Otherwise you might be spending days trying to figure it out. Good luck and don't let the puter win. Wink

I would agree with Wicket.  Slave the drive, retrieve the data, then start from scratch.
