You have to insert a Windows 7 CD to boot from in order to do the fix. If you don't have it you can borrow one from a friend for this purpose.

You can follow the instructions in this post:

BTW, it looks like Windows Updates were not the cause of the problem but rather Adobe Flash updates.

What restart button are you referring to? How do you start it normally, by pressing the Power button, no?

You need a CD to boot from. If you can't borrow Windows 7 from someone you can download Puppy Linux to boot the machine and then copy the file to the proper directory. Unfortunately, I can't walk you through that procedure. I'll see if I can find someone else who can.

Ok at last I was able to fix it. Tried all the things that you all said here. Thanks a lot everyone. I was scared that my laptop will not function again. And I did not require the CD. Once again thank you.

Okay, so I went to the other thread located at the link below and found a couple posts with suggestions I will try.

You have to know where is your original windows 7 is stored,In this page at the top of that It writes "Windows 7 on ( D: ) Local Disk"
Even if your windows was in drive C now it mapped on D so you have to address it to drive "D"
in this example it's on drive "D" So I will copy Crypt32.dll to drive "D" (See the attachment)
Click "Command Prompt"
Type these commands and press enter after each line :

CD\Windows\System32
Copy crypt32.dll D:\Winsows\System32

if you see "1 file(s) copied." it means it has done successfully.
Remove DVD , close command prompt window and click on "restart"
Your computer should be fixed.
Also, I watched the Youtube video that was posted. I got the Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit CD from someone I know, too.

MY QUESTION: Since I have Win7 64-bit, should "CD\Windows\System32" instead be "CD\Windows\System64" for my computer?

I don't want to test this solution/method until I get an answer for my question above. Thanks for all the help from everyone who posted so far.

Not if it's crypt32.dll.

By the way, you never need the Vista or 7 DVD to replace files. They are all located in the Side-by-side folder, which is also why sfc doesn't need the DVD.

Thanks for the clarification Elvandil. Admittedly, I don't know enough about Windows 7 so apologize for any misinformation.

Thanks.

I don't know where the side-by-side folder is located, so I used the Win7 CD/DVD I got from a friend.

Good News: mhd1360's solution worked and my computer is working again. Woohoo! Thank you.

However... Two messages popped up on my screen after the successful boot. 1) A notification for an Adobe Flash update popped up (I ignored it/clicked on "Remind Me Later"); 2) System Restore failed (clicked "OK" or whatever).

I tested Firefox again and went to ESPN.com to watch a video. The video is lagging, and it is causing Firefox to act very "buggy." Does anyone have any solutions to fix this problem and/or advice on what to do about the Adobe Flash Update that popped up?

More pop-ups:
- Firefox update
- Java update

Should I go ahead and update these? (Do you think this will help minimize any "bugs"/lags?

Also, I still want to address the Adobe Flash Update since that was what caused all this mess. Should I update that, too?
