    So recently, I received a blue screen of death. The error was something along the lines of:
    page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

    When it restarted, windows advised me to perform a system file check. So I left my computer for a bit, and when I came back it was already at the logon screen. However, when I logged on and started firefox, first thing I noticed was that all my bookmarks and some extensions had been wiped.
    I then tried to start Microsoft Word but I received the following error:

    "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect";

    I receive that error for most of my other programs.

    When I tried to run event viewer, it says:

    "MMC could not create the snap-in"

    Please help. Is it possible to restore my applications without reinstalling them all?

    I've also tried repairing my programs in 'add or remove programs' but to no avail.

    Have you tried a System Restore to a date before the original problem occured?

    For some reason, it seems that after the file check, all my restore points disappeared. I tried restoring to a restore point created by a windows update after the check was performed, but nothing changed. Furthermore, uninstalling and reinstalling programs does not seem to fix the side-by-side issue. But newly installed programs, or installing updated versions will work e.g. I was able to install Adobe Reader X but reinstalling Adobe Reader 9 did not make it work.
