    Default XPCOM?

    Computer started "Your computer was unable to start, Startup Repair is checking your system for problem"
    Now getting "Couldn't load XPCOM." What is the easiest way of sorting this out please?.

    Do you have FF on your system? Could be that not loading properly.

    Thanks. I have reinstalled Firefox and the problem is solved. I guess I should have done that in the first place. Not thinking too fast these days. It looks like xpcom.dll was missing.

    Weren't you also getting problems with IE not loading? Sounds to me like these problems likely come from the same cause.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Yes. I agree, something is amiss but what?.
    I am not quite sure how to tackle the problem. I have given up on IE. I am not completely sure that FF is 100% either.

    The startup repair issue (and others) could have been triggered by file corruption, possibly by faulty RAM or HDD, or maybe a virus.
