    Assuming it hasn't been too long, have you tried using System Restore to a date before using the registry cleaner?

    If that registry "cleaner" has done enough damage to the Windows operating system, your only viable option is to format the hard drive and do a clean reinstall of Windows.

    Never ever use registry cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup/tweak type programs, no matter what they claim they can do.
