    [#0005ff]Oh dear - did you back eth Registry up before playing around with it? Using Explorer, check in c:\windows\system32\config and list here the names of all the files in that folder. Wait until someone advises which to rename and delete to try to get your system back up.[/#000ff]
  2. that is the problem for me a lesson for all, that i did not backed up registry

    It maynot be a terminal problem - you might still have a fairly recent System.sav in that folder. If you have, rename System to system.old and system.sav to system. You'll need to do this using an XP or Hirens CD so the copies can be made outside the GUI.
