    This kind of error might be come into play due to these reasons...

    >>>>Due to virus or any other infected system file.
    >>>>One of the installed software make this kind of issue.
    >>>>Windows Vista OS does not install fully into your system.
    >>>>Installing OS has some corrupt file.

    To solve that problem try these steps....

    >>>>Scan your computer with good quality of antivirus.
    >>>>Antivirus scanning will fix virus file and make your system workable.
    >>>>Find the software that make this kind of issue.
    >>>>Uninstall that and install again
    >>>>Go to Windows recovery mode and recover your Windows vista OS.

    Method 1-
    Step 1-
    I would have you log into Safe Mode. Check if the issue persists over there.
    Refer the link-
    Note: Make sure you log back into Normal Mode after following all the troubleshooting steps.
    If the issue does not occur in Safe Mode, then proceed to Step 2.
    Step 2-
    I would recommend you to perform a Clean Boot.

    Placing the computer in a Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to perform the steps from the article-

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: You need to follow Step 3 from the article to get the computer back to Normal Startup after performing all the troubleshooting steps.
    Method 2-
    I would have you delete the “Temp” files on the computer.
    Refer the steps-
    a) Click on “Start” and select “run”.
    b) Now, copy and paste the path and hit “Enter”-
    c) Now, delete all the contents of the folder.
    d) Restart the computer and check.
    Method 3-
    Note: Assuming that a program was not completely uninstalled on the computer, I would have you run the fixit-
    Fix problems with programs that can't be installed or uninstalled

    The error message that you are encountering may have it`s origin from the registry.

    Need to SAFE MODE boot the system by pressing F8 a number of times once the POST checking is over.

    Once the menu is provided select SAFE MODE from the menu.

    Observe if Safe Mode booting invokes the message which used to come under normal booting process. if not, exit and reboot in 4-5 times in SAFE MODE.

    If Safe Mode boot fails to solve the issue, You should think of a "Repair" of the windows in the first place,
    Insert the Windows Installer CD in the drive and Select Repair option and follow the instructions.
    If Repair fails to solve the issue, i`m afraid you need to "Clean Install" Windows, for that back up all necessary data and files, partition the drive as required,Format the partition, and finally Insert the Windows Installer CD into optical drive and install Windows Afresh.
