I ran a reg cleaner, cant remember which but it was a well known one, and after it ran its 'registry efficient' program, it told me to reboot.
Then upon restarting a dreaded DOS black screen stating that a registry is corrupted and files in system32 are missing.
Well after 2 hours on the phone to a friend looking on the net for an answer i finally was able to restore a new registry off the win xp cd.
None of my installed programs worked, but it did allow me to backup my files and then i had to do a full reinstall.
Never again will i trust a registry enhancer/cleaner program.
