I ran the freeware registry compacting program NTREGOPT in Safe Mode. Everything looked fine as it reported it's usual "registry optimized - reboot PC now?". I allowed it to reboot. Now, right after the windows progress bar loads all I get is a black screen - it doesn't matter if I boot to Normal Windows or Safe Mode.

Rebooting from a boot floppy or my XP CD has the same result. The machine was running perfectly before this and I have never had a problem with NTREGOPT before.

What to do?

This is pretty weird but I encountered one before. Mine happens at boot and shutdowns.
As for shutdowns I'm sure that I gave to much for my pc to defrag paging for using high virtual memory.
And as for startup, I was editing my registery and startup applications and yes it starts at a blank page...but slowly it jumps to window. My suggestion is :

a) Try to do a crtl+alt+del at the blank screen. If it pops up the task manager, there is possibility that the system is still ok.
b. If the partition is a FAT32, boot from your bootable disk and do a scandisk or in XP chkdsk. Do a /F as in chkdsk /f for automatic repairs.

Hope it will help.

I just kept rebooting the thing over and over, and viola! - Windows came up normally. I don't know if I should do a restore; everything seems to be working OK.

Thanks for your quick response. No more NTREGOPT for me ...that program is Outta Here!

This is why for the most part we don't suggest the use of registry tools. If you are going to use one though you should back up the registry first.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Actually I did back it up - with Erunt. Unfortunately when I tried to restore from the backup (via the restore console), they were all zero files! :thumbsup:
