    Typed that into run the outcome was a black box flashing off and on, the same as the i.e icon result.
    Scannow and DISM are not items to be an operation of Run. They are run in Command Prompt. Did you follow the linked tutorials?

    You may want to refresh to an earlier time. That will be less time than reinstall from the OEM partition.

    yes i have tried everything, i have even had my bro round who is very good when it comes to this sort of thing and he hit a brick wall, phoned Microsoft and asked thier tech guys and they couldn't do it either, looks like a unfixable fix.

    Arronb, did you try uninstalling the updates by any chance? Did you restore from OEM partition?
