Thank you
GRLDR is the Grub 4 DOS Loader, as used by some distribution of Linux. You
must have had Linux installed on the machine at some stage. That's not a
problem, itself. But the old Linux installation has left behind a boot
loader which appears to be hijacking the system, when you try to boot
Windows.

Either check the support channel for the Linux distribution you were using,
for details about how to remove GRLDR. Or follow the steps in this KB
article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392
to run bootrec with /fixmbr and /fixboot ... that should hopelfully restore
the Windows boot loader so it starts Windows Vista normally. Be aware, if
you are dual-booting Linux and Windows, this will probably remove access to
your Linux installation.

Hope it helps,

Thank you, xpcman 12
