    I recently updated to service pack 3 for windows. I also attempted to delete a program called "Bonjour" via regedit. Shortly after both these events(not sure if they are related to my problem), I encountered a ton of problems...

    svchost.exe application error. this is shown right at the login screen, with the options to terminate or debug. If i click debug, windows can start, but VERY slow. I also have an error with my firewall which says "error initializing windows sockets." My sound does not work, due to some error about my sound drivers. I tried doing a system restore, and each time the result was "your computer cannot be restored to..." and then the date that i tried to restore it to. I did not see these errors while rebooting in safe mode. I cannot get internet, it constantly keeps saying "acquiring network address..." I tried enabling and starting multiple services that weren't started and received errors saying they failed to initialize. I am currently using a friends computer to upload this message, as i have no internet and a host of problems. I have generated various logfiles: hijackthis, processlist, startuplist, and another log from another program that i forgot the name of). I have also tried a virus scan with AVG, which turned up no results of an infection. I did a malware scan as well and it found nothing.

    Attached are the various logs i have generated. I hope you can locate the problem and help me out with a solution.

    Did you backup the registry prior to regedit and if so did you try to restore it?
