    Default [Guide]Fixing Windows Registry

    It happens to all of us, we mess up and delete shit that we shouldn't. You're in luck! There is a solution to this bullshitting issue....

    If your registry has some small issues and just needs to get the "shit" kicked outta it, then run system restore by doing the following actions:

    Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then click OK.

    Or you can go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Then once that is running, just restore your machine to an earlier time.

    On the other hand if your registry is fucked up so bad that your machine can't even start, then herez whad u do...

    Get your Windows XP Installation CD and slap it into your disc drive. Then Re-Boot the machine and when it says "Press any key to boot from CD..." press a key and boot from that bitch.

    Ah-ite, assuming that everything went to plan you should be at the Windows XP Installation screen. It's kinda blue with some white text. (not BSOD "Blue Screen Of Death") da da da.... OK now press R to start a Recovery Console.

    Now select the Windows Installation that you want to fix, then enter the Administration password, if there is none, just press enter.

    At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line:
    md tmp
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\default
    copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
    copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
    copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
    copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
    Type exit to quit Recovery Console. The computer will restart, and should work
    OAH!!! If you have a dual boot, make sure that you use the right operating system folder.
    For example: copy c:\Operating System Folder HERE\system32\config\system c:\Operating System Folder HERE\tmp\system.bak
    ...Hope that helped
