Ok, that is a very weird problem, probably an update fails to "update" the file it is trying to access. You are saying you have an HP Pavilion Laptop? In that case press F11 at boot and when the Recovery Manger loads up, select that you want to make a system restore. DO NOT MAKE A RECOVERY a recovery will reinstall vista and destroy all your personal data and reinstall all that crap HP put in your PC.

This is highly inaccurate, but it was a very long time since my last use of recovery manager.
