I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit machine that boots only to a black screen, with a movable mouse pointer.
I have tried all the various modes. I've tried system restore but it only points to a restore point from 2010. I've tried startup repair. I've manually rolled the registry back to about a week ago, but it still has the same problem. I'm not sure what else to do.
I've also tried to hood the HDD externally to another PC. When attempting to access the drive I get Access Denied errors. After taking ownership of the files I was able to see them, but it didn't resolve any issues. Attemping to hook the HDD to any other PC's or user accounts provides the same permission errors. Hope that helps some.
Any halp is appreciated. Thank you.
***Note: Right now I am running this command from the command prompt in the recovery console. icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET
