Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose command prompt only, type scanreg /restore then press enter, choose one which is shown as started and is before this error

It would depend on the cause, which could have been a number of things, the option you used has 5 registy back up usually and you would be unlucky if none of them started the PC

If it happens again, post back with as much detail (recent installs / uninstalls) as you can

Thank You for letting me know

Hope it goes well
