    Thank you for replying :)

    I just went to the first one and while I thought it was going to work, it didn't. I have tried twice now to reply and copy/paste the error it gave me but it times out and won't go through? Too long maybe?

    Microsoft error code was 0x643 if that helps

    If no luck, proceed with Method #2 HERE.

    Neither method worked, I have to get ready for work now, hopefully in the next day or two I can get back to this. This is my hubby's computer I'm trying to fix.

    Thank you for your help Phantom, I really appreciate it.
