Okay here is the story. I want to avoid doing a reload or in place upgrade.
Have windows xp Home computer.
Can't load into Windows, even in safe mode. The only thing that works is safe mode with command prompt. I am receiving the following error.
"the procedure  entry point SHReGetValueW could not be located in the dynamic link library".  
 After this error pops up you can still accesss the Task manager but thats all.

SFC /scannow doesn't work in safe mode with command prompt or Recovery console
I can't do a system restore from command prompt because i get the same error
I CAN access the registry in safe mode with command prompt.
I tried to copy the shlwapi.dll into windows but that didn't help.  
I mean i am in safe mode and have the command prompt and registry available, is there anything i can do?
