Corrupted Windows Registry

A few days ago, I went to my main computer at home and saw that it had blue screened. I hit the reset key and figured it’d go ahead and boot up. But it didn’t. It came up with an error I’ve seen (and fixed) before, which indicated that it couldn’t find the boot files. […]
