I just finished updating a Dell Inspiron 1100 with service pack 3. Now all I get is a blue screen with stop: c0000135 unable to locate component this application has failed to start because winsrv was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem.
I cannot boot into safe mode and i do not have a xp disc. Is there a way to get to the recovery console other than an xp start up disk?
Can I download a start up disk off this xp system to use to boot from?
Can I just reinstall the winsrv somehow? or simply delete service pack 2?
I was updating based upon windows critical updates, I have no idea how long it has been since this system was updated with anything. It had several viruses, trojans and malware, but when i tried to load avg, it wanted me to upgrade xp.
Please help. I am locked on the blue screen and can't get anywhere.
