Windows Validation Error - black screen, no access to task manager/control panel RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have no restore points (apparently) and when I go into safe mode to try and uninstall the last windows update (same day as when the error started) it tells me that the windows installer might not be installed correctly (so so so helpful)

     

    here is the diagnostic report:

  • Hello Conformitos,

    The core of your issue centers on the line in your Diagnostic Report that reads:

    File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\dnsapi.dll[6.0.6000.16615]

     

    This means the file has been Tampered, Modified or has become Corrupt. Vista see this as an attack to bypass it's Licensing security.

    To resolve the issue, you need to either repair file .

    First try doing a System Scan. The scan will look for bad Vista files and will attempt to repair them, if possible. (it appears from your post that you have already tried this. I recommend trying it again, just in case).

    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 didin't work, try repairing Windows using System Restore:

    1)    Reboot Vista into Safe Mode

    2)    Click the ‘Start’ button

    3)    In the Start Search field, type: System Restore and hit “Enter” keyboard key

    4)    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.

    5)    Click the "Next" button.

    6)    Reboot back into Normal mode

    7)    Vista should no longer be in Reduced Functionality mode

     

    If neither of these sets of steps resolves the issue, my only other suggestions would be either to contact Vista support at http://support.microsoft.com or reinstall Vista.

  • i also ran a system scan which that it found corrupt files but it was unable to fix them. it told me i could view them in windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log

    when i tried to access it, it said that access is denied. also when i try to run an antivirus scanner, it gives me an error of "not enough quota is available to process this command"
