Well unless you have disks, or it gives you the opition to press (F11 or the likes) for restore, your on the hard road

Try putting in the vista disk, getting it to boot from it, and repair. If that doesn't work back up all your personal data and format/reinstall. Also think about getting a new hard drive - there's a good chance it corrupt because the hard disk is dying.

sorry kiwikid1 that sounds bad!
Can anyone tell me what to do about downloading updates for windows when we are on poor dial up (drops out a lot, rural is crap). We were fine until we lost the net for one month new the downloads are too big and prompts keep wanting to download and if we try the connection drops out! !

kt061: you might like to start a new thread with an appropriate title, this one is vaguely titled "vista".

one thing you could do is take your computer somewhere that has broadband just to get the updates done.
updates resume though i'm sure...

how are you trying to do these updates?
via the windows update site or using automatic updates?
are you using xp or vista or win 7... ?

And I am guesss it is a desktop - if it was a laptop I would look for a hotspot and get it going again!
