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.
