From past experience when registry errors get reported it can often be down to RAM.

We need your computer make and model number. With PC's (rather than laptops) the RAM is usually easy to access. Best try cleaning its edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser then popping the stick(s) in and out a few times to clear any oxide off the sockets. Trying one stick at a time in first position can prove things if there is more than one stick. There is a RAM test here:

Of-course it could be something else but RAM is worth checking.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
