My laptop running Vista Ultimate x64 crashed the other day and
refused to reboot, telling me that winload.exe was missing or

installation DVD and get it booted. Now everything seems to be

Error writing temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is
I don't know what NSIS is, but I am unable to send email or do
several other common tasks. Can anyone tell me how I can fix

System variables set and no User variables.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
