    I rebooted my computer after uninstalling my McAfee products when I got this message:

    Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
    Registry can not load the hive (file)
    \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
    or its log or alternate
    It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

    I then started to follow this guide here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545/

    I finished Part One of the guide, but when I restart in Safe Mode, the only user on the list is the Administrator and it is password protected. I never set a password for the Administrator!!
    please help:eek:


    Thanks,
    Tom

    I think if you Ctrl \ Alt \ Delete twice at the login prompt you'll be able to enter the user account you normally use.
