That post contains several steps and links that might help you. I would start with these first.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

The last file is the database file, though it is named differently.

Just to be safe, though, I suggest renaming the file to mcepg2-0-old instead of deleting it. If MCE has a problem with it, you can name it back to what it was.

In that case, I'd restore the folder from the recycle bin and proceed with the next step from the MS.com page.

As you wish. Let us know if you eventually get it figured it out.
