MSG: One Component missing... Try Reinstalling App. contact tech sup (0001).

After getting past the user id and password dialog box I get the dialog box:  At least one component missing, try reinstalling application, contact tech. support (0001).

Two days ago I Add/Removed 3 routines;  next day booted and blue screen of death said unavailable hardware.  Able to Safe Mode restore four  days ago.  Now, get the msg. above. 

Is there a program that can be run to check all components are installed and not corrupted.  The msg. displayed is useless and wasting my time.

thank you

Reinstall whatever the "3 routines" were that you removed. For system files, you can run the System File Checker. Start>Run>sfc /scannow [OK]. For startup management:

Start>Run>msconfig [enter]

This brings up the System Configuration Utility. Look on the Startup tab and find the probable culprit. Uncheck the box next to its name, Apply and OK out. You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Just tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes. Instead, use Start>Run>services.msc [enter]
and do not stop any services unless you really, really know what you're doing.

Sorry this didn't help.

Thank you for the sfc /scannow suggestion.  I'll try it to see if the problem is system or application.
