  • Hello klaraann1333,

      
      The core to your particular issue centers on the lines in your Diagnostic Report that reads:

    File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\Slsvc.exe[6.0.6000.16509]
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\dnsapi.dll[6.0.6000.16615]
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\gdi32.dll[6.0.6000.16766]
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\gpapi.dll[6.0.6000.16386]


      This means that these system files (slsvc.exe, dnsapi.dll, gdi32.dll and gpapi.dll) have been tampered, modified or have become corrupt. Vista's Software Protection Platform compares the Siagnature hash (think fingerprint) of Vista's system files with a list of the proper signature hash's in Vista's System Catalog.  If a file is changed in any way, it's signature hash will change and if the signature hash doesn't match what in listed in the system catalog, Vista knows the file is no longer valid.  When this happens Vista assumes that something is attempting to compromise it's security and goes into Reduced Functionality Mode.

    To fix the issue, we need to either repair or replace the bad files with known good ones.

    First we will try to Repair Windows using System Restore: 

    1) Reboot Vista into Safe Mode
    2) Go to Control Panel
    3) On the left hand side of the Control Panel window, Click on "Classic View"
    4) Double-click "Backup and Restore Center"
    5) On the left hand side of the window, click "Repair Windows using system restore"
    6) Select "Choose Different Restore Point", Put a check in the box that says "Show restore points older than 5 days", select the restore point that corresponds to the date Before you first noticed the issue.
    7) Click the "Next" button.
    8) Reboot back into Normal mode
    9) See if that resolves the issue


    If that doesn't work, we'll try doing a System Scan. The scan will look for bad Vista files and will attempt to repair them, if posible.

    1) Login to Vista in Normal Mode (not safe mode)
    2) Launch an Internet Browser
    3) Type: 
    %windir%\system32\ in the browser's address field
    4) Scroll down till you find the file cmd.exe
    5) Right-click the file and select 'Run as Administrator'
    6) In the CMD window, type: sfc /scannow
    7) Reboot twice and see if that resolves the issue.

    If that does not work, we will try replacing the files by installing Vista Service Pack 1. Most (if not all) of those files should be contained in SP1.

    1) Login to Vista in Normal Mode
    2) Launch an Internet Browser
    3) Go to: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en
    or http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=874a414b-32b2-41cc-bd8b-d71eda5ec07c&DisplayLang=en  for Vista 64bit

    4) Download the file to your Desktop
    5) Run the update.
    6) After the update has finished, reboot twice and see if the issue is resolved

    If none of my suggestions resolve the problem, the last resort would be to reinstall Vista.

    Thank you,
