It started out as a small problem with malware then after running an malware program i could not log in into windows, id log in and then get instantly logged out, so I googled the problem and all solutions to the problem was to repair reinstall windows with the cd, which work but then i got another dang error which was error code: 0X80004005. Which means basically there is problem preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. So i googled that and got the solution to that (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306081 [method 2]). I proceeded with the instructions till i got to the point where it instructs me to "Press 1 to access your primary drive installation with Recovery Console." which i attempt with no luck

Any help or suggestions WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!

That error message, and most other errror messages, can have many possible causes and interpretations.

FWIW: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/g...6-d3dedb727db1/

Do you have XP installed, as I see that Vista frequently can generate an error with these numbers?

KB referenced by you: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306081

<<...instructs me to "Press 1 to access your primary drive installation with Recovery Console." which i attempt with no luck>>

Can you provide more detail as to exactly what happens after you entered the Recovery Console? Did you make the selection? If not, what happened to prevent such? Did you get to the password prompt line?

Terribly sry i had failed to wait for a response, i was fearing no one would respond so i tried to repair reinstall windows again with another cd, I no longer get the windows error anymore, now when i start up it get goes to the regular welcome login screen, though when i try to log in, it starts to load settings then saves my settings and logs off. returning to the login screen.
