I have a simple question with a complex answer.
Can you do anything with a corrupt registry if you do not have install disc. I do have a Bart PE boot disc but that is all. :thumbsup:

You can use PE mode to:
1) Find the registry files in the System Restore points
2) Rename the registry files in the Windows directory
3) Copy the registry files from the System Restore points to the Windows directory

This procedure works most of the time - but is by no means a surefire fix.

The corrupted files ...I have been trying to determin.
I have used the Bart PE and can access the c drive and see files but can not get past.

The only error messege I receive is that registry can not update and will shut down.

Is this a Blue Screen error? If so, what were the numbers that it gave? This may not be a registry error, and could be a hard drive problem. If so, then repeated accessing of the hard drive may be corrupting more data.

Try a free, bootable diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive.

The usual problem occures in boot mode, safe or normal, and simply states that the registry will not update and will shut down.

I was able to get some error codes as follows

0x0000007B (oxf8991528,0x0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

Here's a link to the error: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x7b

It's an issue with accessing your hard drive. I'd try the free diagnostic utilities from the manufacturer of your hard drive - and I'd try this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com
