DCOM shutdown in safemode

I have a sony laptop that will not boot. In normal mode it gets as far as the desktop then freezes never showing the icons. In safe mode I get the Ntservice  DCOM message with one minute to shutdown. I have removed the HDD and scanned for viruses with the latest version of AVG IS. I cannot click or type on anything once this machine boots. C+A+D does bring the task manager up.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have run chkdsk /f no change. I also ran chkdsk /r no change. I ran sfc /scannow and it asks for Windows Xp professional Disk 2 ?? This is a XP media center machine.

I ended up formatting and reloading Windows. Nothing else seemed to touch this.
