i recently backed up some files and then had to reboot. i got the message 'windows encountered an error acessing the registry. windows will repair the registry for you and restart the computer' On restart, i get the same message over and over,. i tried scanreg /fix and scanreg /restore and even system restore , but to no avail. it doesnt seem to stop me doing anything in the system, but obviously there is a prob,. can anyone suggest a fix.
