Unfortunately the download I linked to has changed so I will need to relocate them.  I did host them on my dropbox until I exceeded my bandwidth of 20Gb per day.  Do you have access to another Vista system as we could use that to create a repair disc

When you boot the computer immediately press and hold F8, does a menu appear ?
If so is there a command prompt option ?
Does the command prompt option open ?

If so then download the correct version of FRST to a USB
Insert the USB
Boot to the command prompt
 
At the command prompt type the following  :
 
notepad and press Enter
The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open
Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad. 
In the command window type e:\frst64.exe and press Enter  (or FRST if 32bit)
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive. 
The tool will start to run. 
When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. 

Press Scan button. 
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
