Welcome to BC. Nice that you joined our community.

Did you backup the registry before you altered it?

Just restore it and start again.

HI I guess you can do a repair installation of windows xp, That should fix the problem..
possible you might have to re-install couple of programs back, if your registry gets replaced fully.
