ok when i boot my computer i get a blue screen error that says the registry file systemroot/system32/config/software is missing or corrupt. then it just shuts down and restarts anf does the same thing. last known good configuration doesnt work neither does safe mode. i think the problem happened when i my computer was updating. it might have been doing something to the registry but i shut it off while it was updating. does Anybody know how i can fix this without buying a copy of vista.

I hope you were able to make a good back up of your system. Since you said that it blue screens in safe mode you may want to try a repair. For the looks of your post I am also assuming you do not have your windows Vista DVD. If you do you could take a look at this tutorial by Bleeping Computer, it will instruct you on how do repair your windows vista installation. Before doing that have you recently added any new hardware or software? If you cannot get into any of the three safe mode options then I would try the repair. The Windows Vista DVD can be a very valuable tool. If you do not have any media then another route will have to be used. Here is the link for the tutorial:
