    been there done that. One program to look at would be abexo registry cleaner, you acn clean the reg with it and Back up a healthy one, so if you do this again you can just load it. That is if you can boot.
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

      Your best option is to avoid screwing with the registry until you know what you're doing.

      I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

        geeze man I wouldn't say that he didn't know what he was doing. He said he just got a little carried away with it. Maybe he just made a simple mistake, it even happens to the best.

          ednos: yes I do know what I was doing, I was doing some reg tweaks and I know where I went wrong in writing some new keys, it just so happens that those keys I was wrote, I goofed on one and that prevented me from booting this time. it is really no big deal, happens sometimes.
          Lifes a risk, and so is computing, computing would be so boring without the risks.
          Besides, ya never will know if that new tweak/new key(s) will work unless ya try it.
          trooper, yea, thats a nice app. I have it :)
