I have tried to reset the password and get the router back to a basic router config but all to no avail
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks This is not urgent but I believe it is fairly difficult

Looks like your IOS image is corrupted and needs to be replaced.  You can do this by copying a good IOS image from a TFTP server running on a PC to flash on the router.

You can download a free TFTP server from http://www.solarwinds.net

You'll need to download a new IOS image from Cisco's website and copy it to the TFTP root folder on the PC running the TFTP server.

Set the filename of the IOS image file:

set file-name = <filename>

You then need to set the IP address of the router:

set unit-ip = 192.168.0.1

Set the subnet mask:

set netmask = 255.255.255.0

Set the TFTP server address (this is the IP address of the PC running TFTP):

set serv-ip = 192.168.0.10

Next use the following command to download the IOS image from the TFTP server:

upload tftp

Then type "boot flash" to boot the router.

On second thought, do a "list" to see if you have multiple IOS images loaded on the router.  It looks like you do and perhaps only c805-y6-mw_120-7_T.bin is corrupted.  If you do a list and two IOS images show up, you can delete the c805-y6-mw_120-7_T.bin image as it is most likely corrupted and use the following command to set the boot file to the working IOS.

boot# set file-name = <other IOS image>

Then type "boot flash" and see if it loads correctly.  If not, you will need to download a new image from Cisco and follow the steps in my first post.
