nls files are windows files so I would suggest doing an in place install as  they seem to have become currupted

Check the hard drive for errors.

It goes through the error check process each time it crashes and i must restart it.
In each case errors are found and corrected in area 128 especially.
I was thinking it might be a hard drive problem. an in place install also might do the trick

If the hard drive check can't complete without finding errors, you have a bad hard drive.

Even if you do an in place install and it works, it won't work for long.

I would clone the drive to another hard drive while you still can. Then run a disk check.

It had a tremendous number of harddrive errors. which were fixed. The unit is now running good but how long the hard drive will last is questionable.
