    Hi jack99, welcome to TSG.

    May I ask exactly what you were trying to update?

    What operating system are you running......you may be able to boot to a dos prompt and restore a previous registry by typing:

    scanreg /restore
    (space after the g)
    and pressing enter.

    Pick a date before your failed update attempt, but don't go back too far.

    Oops, sorry, that's enough to get the post closed....read the forum rules........no hacks, cracks, etc. You probably messed up the DVD beyond repair....... :(
