If you have Vista DVD, try to boot from DVD and performed system restore or if it fails you can do manual system restore by renaming the 5 files ( system, software, config, sam and security ) to e.g, sam.old in c:\windows\system32\config. Once you renamed those file try to copy those files from c:\windows\system32\config\regback to c:\windows\system32\config. You have to do a mual system restore by booting from Vista DVD -> Repair your computer -> Command prompt.

Good luck.

Thing is, I do not have a Vista DVD... Can I still rename and replace those 5 files? I can use command prompt.
Oh, and the c:\windows\system32\config\regback is empty...
