 You can make a repair disc on another Windows 7 computer with 32 or 64 bit version matching the one you're working on.  Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Backup and restore -> Create system repair disc.  Insert a blank CD-R and it will make it.  Then take the repair disc, boot from it, and do the repair.

 I assumed Windows 7 for this since you didn't say.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
