My computer specifics are - HP Pavilion dv6226tx, 1.60Ghz, 2.5GB DDR2 (2 + 512)RAM, 120GB Harddisk, with vista home premium 32-bit service pack 2
so here's the problem..
I have been playing around with my Vista for some days now. I patched my registry to account for custom visual styles and all.
The computer responded fine to all these changes until today. I installed Desktop Maestro 220.127.116.110 which according to the internet is a decent registry cleaner and works with vista sp2.
What I learnt from the net is that desktop maestro will clean registry and will quicken my startup. So i ran it, and it came up with 937 problems in my registry. So the next thing i did was "Repair". and it did just that. But since then my computer hasn't been starting up at all. Before the login screen comes, i get a blue screen, which remains for too short a time for me to read, and reboots.
So, I did the following...
Turned the computer on in Safe Mode, which worked perfectly. Ran desktop maestro again, and restored the computer to a previous state. This didn't work. it kept saying C: has some errors please check. But the disk check doesnt work.
So, there were some backup files of the previous files created by DM, so i just backed 'em up.
This seemed to work, as the login screen showed up this time. when i entered my password, it shut down again. Again i turned it on in safe mode, and this time i get the following message, along with the following error message.
