Was there any other text displayed with the error? Can you provide us with the exact text of the error?

You can restore a backup copy of the Registry to fix the problem. Boot to MS-DOS use the hard drive or the Windows Startup floppy. Then type: SCANREG /RESTORE

A menu will be presented with a list of up to 5 backups. Pick the most resent and follow the instructions. If it does not work try another.
