Hi, I am seriously considering the purchase of EASEUS data recovery wizard or Partition Table Doctor and have some questions, I will give you the background of my problem - I was loading Password Pros (password recovery software) and during the loading process (when it was in the middle of loading) the computer was accidently rebooted by me. Now every time I turn on my computer it repeatedly reboots itself and never gets past this point. Just before the computer is ready to shut itself down and reboot itself again, it gives the message "Bad image check sum olecnv32.dll c0000221".

Is there any more suggestion?

A few steps to try:

1) Before booting to Windows, hit F8, and select 'Last Known Good Configuration', or 'Safe Mode'

2) If you have the original Windows CD, reinstall Windows over itself. If done properly, it won't wipe out your data, but you will have to do a lot of Windows updates.

3) Using another computer, Knoppix, UBCD4WIN, or the recovery console, replace olecnv32.dll with a good copy. It can be extracted from a CAB file on your Windows CD. Don't be suprised if, after doing this, you find other errors with other files, which is why I recommend #1 or #2.

4) If your data is really important, image it before you do #1, #2, #3, or anything else.

BTW, I'll give it 97% odds this isn't a data recovery problem. Windows is damaged. Fix Windows, or read the information from another computer. Easeus won't help.

I would remove the drive, set the jumpers to "Slave" and plug it on another computer.
Then you can save all of your data to CD/DVD, etc ...
If data is not important you can try to re-install windows or repair windows using the windows install cd.

Personal speaking, compared with EASEUS softwares, I prefer to purchase Final DATA or Easy Recovery.

Of course most likely you will end up not needing the recovery software. First try to plug the drive as "slave" on another computer or run a live cd like bartpe. If you can see the files and copy them to another place you are done there !

Of course that you might be able to solve this by booting with a free BartPe or any other live cd and replace your copy of olecnv32.dll with a working one :)
My guess is that the header or some other part of the file olecnv32.dll on your computer is damaged, the checksum for the file is not correct and so windows stops to avoid further damage.
Replacing the file should make your system work again.
If you can't do it yourself you can send the drive to a data recovery center ... This is the kind of job that any expert in data recovery loves .....
