I have Win Me and i downloaded a game and the whole system crashed and froze up. I switched the computer off without shutting down. when i turned it back on it came up with the safe mode menu. I just decided to try normal mode and the computer started seaching for the new driver?!?! i'd apparently just installed. Then it brings up a gray screen. i then put it in safe mode and i still have a gray screen. Also when its in the safe mode F8 menu its says registry/configuration error try running SCANREG. i really need to fix this. any help would be appreciated

Boot into safe mode and click on start, then run, and type:

Scanreg /restore

and press the ok button
