A couple weeks ago, I noticed Youtube videos and Pinterest images wouldn't display on my Firefox, saying Java wasn't updated. I double-checked, and I had the latest version. But slowly, other things started not working. It wouldn't display pictures. I couldn't watch any videos or anything even on Chrome. Now I can't even open my browsers. I've backed up my docs and was going to do a full wipe of the drive if I had to, but I didn't want to. Instead, I tried a system restore with several dates. None of them would work. I also tried the system diagnostic repair, and it said it could not be repaired. Over the past week or two, it's said I am missing several dll files. I think the first one today was gdi.dll and now it's saying I can't open any program because I'm missing LPK.dll. I can boot it up and see my desktop, but that's about it. Of course it has Windows 7. Should I try something before reformatting? Because honestly, I only have a Win98 disk and don't have any idea how to access Windows on the partition that supposedly backs it up. Thanks in advance!
