Registry Repair And Recovery In Windows Xp
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
When a registry hive becomes damaged, your computer may become unbootable, and you may receive one of the following Stop error messages on a blue screen:
Registry damage often occurs when programs with access to the registry do not cleanly remove temporary items that they store in the registry. This problem may also be caused if a program is terminated or experiences a user-mode fault.
NOTE : The hotfix that is described in this article automatically repairs the registry during startup, but does not display any notification of this process. If you import a damaged registry hive, you may receive a notification, and the recovery of the registry hive takes place as it imports.
