With a bootdisk floppy, get to the C: prompt

Type just this exactly as shown and then hit the Enter key....there IS one space after the g


C:\>scanreg /restore


Select a registry that says "Started" follow the instructions, its pretty simple but takes awhile-


You may lose work created after the date of the restore file you select. The file restored is a copy of the registry as of the date it was made....

Let us know what happens. There should be someone to help you.

Fighter999:

After you start the computer with a startup disk, select "Command Prompt Only" and press Enter.

At the A:\> prompt, type in C: and press Enter.

At the C:\> prompt, type in SCANREG /RESTORE and press Enter.

Select an earlier registry backup copy(but not the oldest one) and press Enter.

If all goes well, the registry will restore itself and Windows will load.

Read here. Pay attention to the 3 links near the bottom of the article, if the registry restore process fails.
