Click Start > Type: cmd in Search box > Open Command Prompt and type; sfc /scannow . Press Enter.
if that doesn't do anything, in Command type: chkdsk /r /f > press Enter...system will need to reboot to run it.
If that doesn't do anything post your machine's make and model so we can look what repair options are available for your machine.
Edit: I saw that too Mike but just thought we'd run through the easist steps first.
My friends machine is a Dell Laptop M5030 with an AMD V140 (2.3GHZ) processor.
We have already run a system disc check which was error free.
We have also run SFC again error free
We have turned off System Restore, deleted all the old restore points and enabled System Restore again.
The problem is also there in Safe Mode.
Reboot the computer and immediately hold down CTRL and F11 keys together until the recovery screen shows and see if there is a repair option....you do NOT want to restore to factory settings....you will lose everything that way. Choose the Repair option if one is there.
If no option is there the you will need a W7 disk to do an in-place upgrade which will replace all the system files but leave your settings, files and programs intact....you will however have to do all Windows updates again. Although the risk is small, you are strongly advised to backup important files to another place before doing this.
If needed, get a disk here and choose same version with SP1:
