I am running windows 7 ultimate and I was uninstalling programs 1 asked for a restart so I did and the OS will not boot.  I tried multiple Restore points and all returned the same error code 0x80070003.  Did some digging around the net and opened the C:\ Windows\System32\config file and noticed that the BCD-Templtes and Components directories are missing.  The Default,SAM, Security, Softwareand System are present.  Need to know if this can be fixed or if I need to do a reinstall?  If a reinstall is needed that; what is the best way to save the files since I cannot login to theGUI at all.  Is the a program to make thing easy or am I going to have to do everything from the command prompt?


Thx for the help
