I was reading alot of the mail here and decided to use a bootable startup cd i'd made a few months ago to see if that could help in anyway and yes it took me into windows after doing a lot of scanning and then gave me all sorts of error reports making me think my whole system has crashed and every bit of data lost.
After the bootable disc stopped scanning my system this is what it reported, "The system has recovered from a serious error,a log has been greated",
Error Signiture,BCCode:c0000218 BCP1:E1c90350, BCP2:00000000, BCP3:00000000, BCP4:00000000, OSVER:5_1_2600 SP:3_0 Product:256_1
Error Report Contents. The following files will be included in this error report.
After that finished I started getting loads of messages with the title,"Windows Delayed Write Failed"
Windows was unable to safe all the data for the file.The data has been lost,this error maybe caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection,please try to save this file elsewhere.
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Ahead\Nero Home\crawlercfg.dat
C:\Program files\Common files
That is only some of them to give you an idea as i had to click each one to close it and another pops up with the same message as above.
A blue screen also appeared with this message,
Stop:C0000218 (Registry File Failure)
The registry cannot load the hive(file):SYSTEMROOT\System32\Config\system or it's log or alternate.
It is corrupt,absent or not WRITEABLE.
BEGGINING DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY.
This also popped up,
The shutdown was initialized by,NT.Authority\System
I think that is what it said as it went away so quick.
It would really be a great help if someone could advise me on exactly what has happened or is happening and if anymore information is needed.
