:welcome: to the Bleeping Computer forum.

 

Corrupted registry hives can be restored easily from a known good restore point in most cases. But before doing that, i recommend doing a full surface scan on the hard drive because bad sectors are the most common reason behind file system corruption. Please follow the below steps.

 

:step1: Backup your data to an external medium.

 

Use a small sized live Linux CD like Puppy to boot the system and backup all your data the an external medium first. Puppy can be downloaded from the below link.

 

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-5.6/slacko-5.6-PAE.iso

 

Burn the ISO file to a blank CD using Imgburn or any other disc image burning app.

 

http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe

 

Boot from Puppy and you will be able to browse the hard drive partitions. They will be mounted and given  names sda1, sda2 etc instead of letters C, D etc.

Backup all the data to a USB drive and proceed to test the hard drive.

 

:step2: Run a full surface scan using Seatool.

 

Download Seatool for DOS disc image from the below link.

 

http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/item/seatools-dos-master/

 

Burn the ISO to a blank disc and boot from it. Run a long test which will scan full surface to find bad sectors.

Report whether it detects errors during the test. If not, we can proceed to fix the registry.
