Another member reported fixing a similar problem:

I'm new to Vista so I asked my wizz friend and then I managed to solve
the problem:
1. I closed computer down.
2. Turned computer on and immediately pressed F8 repeatedly until I got
"Advanced Boot Options".
3. used the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and pressed enter.
4. computer then opened eventually in the funny look of safe mode, with
a "Help" window.
5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?"
Clicking on that gave me the answer and "Click to open System Restore"
6. I clicked on that and a new window came up recommending restoring to
a previous state before windows update which I had done before the fault
occurred.
7. I clicked OK and after a bit of whirring all came up OK. Can you
imagine how pleased I felt?

Good Luck
