I have been searching for advise and dont really know if I need to do a windows repair.

My machine has been running wonderfully until I was told to get registry mechanic and do a registry scan and repair.

Well this is were it all goes bad.

I ran the registry mechanic and did a repair

and deleted I think about 202 different problems that it found.

ever since deleting via Registry Mechanic I am having all sorts of problems.

My kaspersky Internet security keeps popping up with errors everytime I open a program with a drwatson32 tried to access kaspersky

Nearly all my programs when opening comes up with drwatson32 error and closes or drwin i think the other 1 is.

When I start up my machine it takes about 20 minutes for the icons to load in my task bar which used to load within minutes.

once the machine is operational if i open my email it works ok but if i drop it to my task bar and then try to reopen it I get drwatson32 on my screen.

I have all there messages about different windows files unable to load. Winull and remember the other ones

In a nut shell Will windows repair fix my registry... ps dont suggest doing a restore in registry mechanic as i have already tried that and got a message backup is corrupted unable to be used.

Why i originally used Registry Mechanic was to remove a problem I was having with WindvrNT.sys which i now know wasnt the only problem.

I have scanned my pc for viruses / malaware /adaware you name it i have scanned it with no errors.

I scanned my machine with RegistryBooster and it came back with 1003 problems all registry problems.

Fire up System Restore (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools) and roll the system back to a point before you used Registry Mechanic. These programs are dangerous if (no offence) if you don't know what you're doing.
