After my system hung a few days ago I am unable to run many programs - primarily because of missing DLLs (most common error centres around missing iertutil.dll).
I posted on the windows crashes, BSOD forum and conclusion was is either hardware or software problem and both would suggest I do a clean install of windows. See thread here
Not great news for me, but if I have to start with clean install I will but I'm really hoping someone can help me get the computer back to a somewhat stable state so I can make the transition to new install "easier". For example, I have backups of all photos but if I could get Photoshop Elements to run, then I could export the library and import it on new image which would mean all the tags associated with several thousand photo's would be saved - similarly I could maintain my playcount data in iTunes, etc...
Any help is appreciated.
