Hi there guys,
I would appreciate it if you could help me with the following. When I turned my pc on, I got the message below (I'm using Windows XP):
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Start Windows Normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
These are my questions:
1. Can I resolve the problem by restoring the registry? If yes,
2. How can I do it?
Using KNOPPIX and ERUNT I've managed to locate the latest file (20-07-2012) here: Windows/erdnt/autobackup/20-07-2012 What next?
Thank you in advance for your help. Please, keep in mind that my knowledge is quite basic.
