Hi all im having a very weird problem

it all happened when i got this:

Stop: 0xc0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SYSTEM or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

I was able to fix it by using repair installation (because i couldn't use the recovery console since i don't know the password for the Administrator, even i press enter nothing happens) and i thought this is over but after that I did a chkdsk on the next restart and whenever i click the yahoo messenger mail icon i get this create an association in the folder options control panel and the games i installed are also messed up so i had to delete and reinstall them and one game, the graphics was weird like some stuff was missing but when i played Call of Duty the graphics where ok and no problems.

should I try and do a clean reinstall or can u tell me whats the problem?

If u want I can try posting a Hijack this log

Here are some of my computer specs:

Microsoft Windows XP x64 Professional Service Pack 2
AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5400+

Hi :thumbsup:.

That error message can indicate a hard drive problem, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/156640.

So I would run the correct respective hard drive diagnostic on the drive.

Hard Drive Installation and Diagnostic Tools - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/

If a short and a long test are offered in the diagnostic...run the long test.
