I telecommute and use Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to access my office computer. It has a series of fire walls and uses an icon F5 to denote security screens. I access the RDP from my HP Pavilions Media Center Lap top Windows XP edition.
Thursday, When I opened my desktop for personal use got error message that F5 sandbox had corrupted and to run CHKDSK. I ran it and message left, system was fine. Yesterday the error message came back and after I ran chkdsk I got the following error message
Screen 1: Winlogin.exe Bad Image- Application or DLLC:\windows\system cation
DLL msgina.dll "Replace DLL" 32\SHELL32.DLL is not valid windows image. Please check against installation Diskette

hit enter and the following appears:
Logon user interface DLL msgina.dll replace DLL

I went to Microsoft troubleshooting guide and tried to reboot in Safemode using command prompt
Safemode repeated these same error messages.
Is there a work around I can use to get safemode to open? If I can get to system restore I have set restore points that may help (maybe?)
My laptop came preloaded with XP so I don't have an installation diskette. How do I reinstall without a disk? Can I download XP from online? I know Microsoft no longer supports XP, is there anything I can do? Thanks!
