    Hi

    Im after some help booting my system, when trying to boot into windows i get the message:

    Explorer.exe
    unable to locate componenants
    this application has failed to start because normaliz.dll has not been found


    At this stage i cannot get into my comp to do a system restore,
    The only thing i can think to do is insert the system disk and do a repair, but i have documents on my comp that are not yet backed up, will i loose these files by doing a repair.
    Anybody got any ideas?
    Cheers

    Danny
