my name is Chris. Hope you don't mind me jumping in here. Have a similar problem to KeeLocker. My computer was working fine,I was prompted to download Vista service pack 1, downloaded OK, on restart was confronted with blank screen. Booted from recovery disc,tried to use restore point,went through steps OK,came to "finalizing restore point",but never finished,progress bar was cycling,left it all night,no change. Switched off, got to command prompt,used "bootrec/fixmbr",responded "successful",used "bootrec/fixboot", responded "successful",used "bootrec/rebuildbcd",responded "successful". No difference. Tried "rstrui.exe". Used system restore again, same problem as before,it recognizes the restore point but will never finalize. Tried your suggestion. Responded "Beginning system scan.This process will take some time". Then a few seconds later "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation". The problem report from system repair listed the following: Problem Signature 1: external media. PS 2: 6.0.6000.163184.108.40.20601.18000. PS 3: 6. PS 4: 196611. PS 5: bad driver.
After going completely through system repair, it will go to black screen and file names will start typing rapidly across the top of the screen after some time it will stop on the following message: !! 0xc01a001d !! 9420/97999 (\registry\machine\components\deriveddata\...) and the message will scroll flash several times periodically. Don't have a clue what it means or what to do with it, pushing buttons has no effect. I have files I really don't want to lose. I am so angry with microsoft, this is the second time one of their crappy updates screwed my computer. Would appreciate any advice you could give.
Best regards, Chris (cfree)
