Thanks for the help. Looks like a re-install is necessary....
Given this issue, it would in retrospect be nice if MS could give an option
to control the startup loading of non-essential device drivers
for just such an occasion. This is something they could add to the menu on
the boot disc recovery options fairly easily, I would imagine. I remember
years ago they made that possible to a certain extent with Win 98 et. al.
