Yes, if all you've done is removed Registry Files you could likely hook the drive up to a working computer and access the files that way.

You could also try contacting the computer manufacturer and see if they'll send you a recovery disk (or at least tell you how to get one).

Well, you are pretty much out of luck.

As you can see, you might be able to run Windows Recovery to replace those critical system files - the only problem is that it does require an install disc.

Did you loose the disk or did your computer manufacturer never provide one?

There was a site you could download iso files to create XP, Vista and 7 disks but it seems to be dead. Riider keeps track of them. He might post in with a new link if one is available. That would give you the disk you needed to restore those files.

If you Google Windows 7 ISO you get quite a few sites offering the download...they all claim to be 'Official' and whatnot, though I'm not totally sure about the legality of them.

Is there something special about the site/ISO you referenced?

As I recall there were quite a few downloads there for various OS's and some associated software. The downloads didn't come with product keys. Without that they weren't much use in doing a permanent install unless the user already had the key. So they were for legitimate owners who either never received original installation disks or lost them. He posted the original link in his # 2 here:

but as I said the link now appears to be dead. I don't think there was a legal problem with it so I'm kinda suprised it's not there anymore.

I do not remember getting disks with my laptop I think the company have the Windows pre-installed.

Also, is it still possible to somehow retrieve my files from this laptop?

Please outline my available options

Regards, and thanks...
