If Windows 10 has Fast Startup enabled you will not be able to write to the hard drive with Ubuntu.
See the below post by BC member jenae. Only do this if the registry hives in regback are not zero bytes and have a date before you logon problem.
If Ubuntu can write to the drive you can use it top copy the registry files from the regback folder to the config folder.

And avoid doing anything major until you have backed up those user data files to an external drive, even if just by doing a mass copy.
You're in a situation where you may possibly end up doing a completely clean install of Windows 10 if all else fails. You want to be certain to have your user data backed up for that eventuality, too.
This leads right back to the "Backup Soapbox." You, any you, really need to acquire an external backup drive, a third party backup utility, and establish a full system image backup routine for your machine. Using File History for user data backups as well is an excellent idea. If you had a good and recent system image backup you could restore from it in well under an hour.
