My computer goes straight to blue screen on start up and shows this:
stop:c0000218 ( registry file failure) The registry cannot load the hive ( file:
\systemroot\system32\config\software or its log or alternative.
It is corrupt, absent or not writable. Beginning dump of physical memory. Contact system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

It is my sons comp but I need the photos in it as they are from when he was a baby and I don't want to lose them. I know some comp things but I need it in plain language even me as a dummy can understand. I so don't want to restore it. I lose the pics I know.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.

I am out of ideas. It will not leave that screen at all. I don't wish to lose the photos in it. Any and all help appreciated.
