Run on safe mode, and do a chkdsk /f restart your computer and see if that fixes your problem.

It sounds like you have a spyware problem that is stopping the boot config kick in place.

So once again if the chkdsk /f doesn't work check your start-up registry and see what's being started up that is unknown to you.

so in order to see what's being started up, go to your command promt, then go to msconfig and uncheck the unknown things on start up, and in services make sure you click on hide microsoft software, and uncheck all services that are unknown to you...

hope this helps

ps: you should run some type of virus scan and a spyware remover.

Run a virus scan from safe mode.

If System Restore doesn't work, you can do a Repair Install from the Vista DVD.
