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.

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.
