The system was working fine until i noticed issues with gadgets not reponding and messenger not starting. Upon doing a restart the system would not start.System stated that system configuration is incorrect. There were no changes made prior to the problem. A dianostic of the memory showed no errors,and system restore stated that there are files missing that are needed to restore,therefore restore is not possibly.
I am only able to get into the OS by using "last good configuration", but when i do i cannot access the net, network connection states that there a dependant programs missing.
I have been told that it may be a corrupt registry.
Is there any way i can repair the OS/registry without doing a full restore? I have no Vista disk since the laptop has OEM OS.
