    The problem more than likely is from CCleaner if you made a backup from ccleaner I would suggest returning or restoring that particular backup other than that a repair-install of Windows would be in order.

    You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or Thumb drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable and do the following:

Improper changes in the System Registry can render all data on your hard disk inaccessible.

    I hope you have the Windows software for this machine. Please give this a try and print it out for reference

    Remember to always keep a backup of two things:

    Your registry and your data. You will never be sorry.
