    I keep on getting the message Startup Repair is attempting to fix problems at startup.

    Kdcom.dll is corrupt.

    I have an Acer Aspire Windows 7 Home Premium and used factory image disks to reinstall.

    The program to restore system only asked for 1 of 3 system image disk.

    The startup repair screen comes up every 3rd or 4th time I start up.

    Otherwise everything runs smoothly.

    Did you recently install any updates? First try a windows scan: Insert your windows 7> Click start > run> cmd> type: sfc /scannow. Allow it to fully complete the scan hopefully it will restore the .dll file. If that doesn't work again insert your windows 7 reboot and hit f12 boot from cd drive. Wait for the blue screen to appear that asks you if you want to Repair, re-install or esc. Hit "R" (Recovery Console) and when bios screen appears (assuming you don't have an admin pw if you do type that in if not just hit enter) Recovery Console is command based. You'll be asked for the drive that your Windows is installed on. Typically its "1" unless you have multiple installs.When you get to the prompt i.e, C:\WINDOWS>,then type: chkdsk /r

    Let me know if this installs

    EDIT: Do Post #2 first and then this if that does not work.

    Substitute XP for Windows 7. It's going to work the same.

    Copying the file is much better then just running a chkdsk repair (y) Good Luck let us know how it goes.
