Specs: Windows XP, 1.5GB
Ok, started off by trying to clean my registry. During its scanning,my PC froze.. Therefore I tried to reboot my PC,hoping that it would be ok. During the start up,it told me that I didnt shut off my PC properly,and gave me options to start normally,in safe mode n etc.. I tried 1 by 1 of the options but it just stops at the options screen again.. I gave up to try it another day,now it just stucks after reading my ram.. What's wrong? =[

unfortunately this happens when a hard shutdown is performed on a computer. If it doesn't boot back properly then a system repair is about the only option that you have to fix it.

This is caused by the loss of data due to the shutdown and not from the scanning of your registry!

You could try booting to your XP CD and run chkdsk /r after entering the Recovery Console.

Before you ever do anything to the registry, you should always save a copy of it.

A program I use to check for Registry issues is CCleaner ( and also cleans up temp files and everything other kind of file that could be taking up mucho space on your computer
