    My computer wouldn't wake from hibernation yesterday so I held down the power button to force restart. it ran chkdsk etc. and then when it finally booted it keeps giving me multiple errors such as the one below.

    C:/windows\WinSxs\x86_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none\comct.dll is either not designed to run on Windowsot it contains an error.

    I get this with almost every program I try to open. I tried to restore back to a previous date but for some reason it hadn't created any restore points. This was turned off for all disks. I then tried to reinstall Windows, and I got an error message trying to do this as well. I am feeling stuck in a terrible endless loop!!!
