Startup repair log:

Last successful boot time: 7/26/2010 4:50:16 AM (GMT)
Number of repair attempts: 14
-----------------------
all scans return 0x0

-----------------------

Root cause found:

Startup repair has tried several times but still cannot determine the cause of the problem.

-----------------------

So next I tried System Restore:
latest restore point 7/26/2010 5:51:45 AM

Local Disk (C:) (System) Status you must enable System Protection on this drive... IT IS ENABLED which is why I have the restore point. It says this with all other restore points

-------------------------

Then I tried System Image Recovery... when I load image I get an error: This Image does not belong to this system, please select an Image of this system

-------------------------

Then I tried reloading windows 7 and I get and error: your system is missing some drivers for your CD/DVD ROM please load drivers. IT JUST BOOTED OFF THE DVD- AND WINDOWS HAS ALL THE DRIVERS!.... no joy :(

-------------------------

I can run regedit from command prompt so then I tried to repair the reg manually and found broken link to ExplorerFrames.dll it will not allow me to modify the registery, the keys just don't save.

I also found that I could run any program that does not require explorer or the registery from command prompt in repair mode.

Is there a way to manually restore a restore point with out system restore? or something like that?

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!
