Hello
I was wondering if anyone can help. I was using fix it utilities last night cleaning out my registry of things that the software recommended me to do. I have done this many times before. It required me to restart my computer. On restart I get a blank screen. It seems that the cpu is processing and my monitor is on. I tried f11, f12, and f8 on start up not remembering which one to use for safe mode. Never the less that did not work. ANY IDEAS?

If you can't even boot to safe mode, the best you can hope for is a repair of Windows. And then I'd recommend not using registry cleaners anymore.

If you can boot into safe mode, go into System Restore and select a restore date PRIOR to when the problem occurred.

Registry cleaners are too aggressive and will get rid of valid entries along with invalid entries. Stay away from them!

Worse case scenario, you're going to have to reinstall Windows.
