Hello,

My PC has been crashing today, and every time I reboot, I get a BSOD that comes up with REGISTRY_ERROR
the full error is:
0x00000051 (0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF8A000024010, 0x0000000001463000, 0x0000000000000374)

I have manage to run in safe mode, and have the following debug file that I do not understand enough to interpret, but most threads I have found request the file so I thought it might be of some use.

I haven't had the computer online since September, and I just got it back online a few days ago. The only things I have downloaded/installed since then are windows updates and updates to my antivirus. The pc has been running fine until today, I built it in '08 and haven't had any real issues with it yet.

Most threads I have found about the registry error BSOD are solved by fixing newly installed hardware. I have not installed anything new to the system in more than a year.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro with the following hardware:
ASUS p5Q PRO
Intel Core 2 Duo (2.4 GhZ I believe)
4GB DDR2 memory
NVIDIA GTX260
WD 640 GB SATA HDD

Thanks in advance, any help/tips pointing me in the right direction are greatly appreciated.

The BSOD could be caused by either a registry error due to a corrupt file system or faulty hardware.

To restore the registry to an earlier time I would suggest you first try a System Restore.

Windows 7 System Restore Guide

If you have been using a Registry Cleaner, don't use it again as they can do more harm than good.

If System Restore does not solve the problem or there are no Restore Points available then run the following and post the log produced.


NOTE: For Windows 7 systems only: If you cannot get Option 1 to work you can make a Recovery disc to use for Option 2.
Just do this: Click on Start > Control Panel and select Backup and Restore. In the left hand pane select Create a System Recovery disc and follow the prompts.
This can be done on any Windows 7 PC but it must have the same bit rate as the infected PC, i.e. 64 or 32bit.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Enter System Recovery Options by using Option 1 or Option 2
STEP 1
Option 1
To enter the System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:

  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select Repair your computer and hit the Enter key. If Repair your computer is not in the menu you will need to follow Option 2 below.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next. If you know your keyboard is for another language then select that from the list.
  • The system will scan for installed operating systems. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next. If there is only one user account this will go straight to the System Recovery Options.
  • Now go to the instructions for STEP 2.


Option 2
To enter the System Recovery Options by using a Windows installation or Recovery disc:

  • Insert the Installation or Recovery disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer. NOTE: This Option will be skipped if using a Recovery disc.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next. If you know your keyboard is for another language then select that from the list.
  • The system will scan for installed operating systems. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next. If there is only one user account this will go straight to the System Recovery Options.
  • Now go to the instructions for STEP 2.


NOTE: If you are unable to complete either Option 1 or 2 then stop and let me know. This tool will only run correctly if you are able to get to the System Recovery Options menu.

STEP 2
On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt


  • Select Command Prompt
  • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
  • The Notepad opens. Click on File and select Open.
  • Select Computer and find your flash drive below Devices with Removable Storage make a note of the drive letter and close Notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
    Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
    NOTE: if you receive an error message "the system cannot find the drive specified" go back into Notepad and check the drive letter for the Flash Drive, also note the letter can change on subsequent runs.
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. (This may not appear on all systems).
  • Press the Scan button. The progress bar may freeze for a while which is normal, leave it undisturbed and it will complete the scan.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Put the Flash drive back in a working PC, open Windows Explorer and then click on the Flash Drive. Double click on FRST.txt then Copy & Paste the log into your next reply. Please DO NOT send the log as an attachment.

Thanks!

I ran system restore and everything seems to be corrected now. Windows has been running about 15 minutes and no crash.

Will post back if it crashes again.
