Vista startup problem due to Daemon tools..

if you have the original windows vista OS cd you can boot up as though you are going to install the OS. It will then list the current windows installations on the system. Click on the one you are having problems with and click repair. This should fix the MBR info and other boot up problems.

Unable to completely restart windows vista home b

If this is a name brand system, you would need to use either the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer or the restore partition on the hard drive that can usually be accessed by hitting something like F12 (depends on your computer). It sounds like you already reinstalled so the restore partition is out of the question. If you don't have the restore CD/DVD, you may be able to order it from your computer manufacturer. Other than that, you will need the installation disks/files to restore everything.
