You have copied a generic backup registry file to replace a corrupted or missing hive.
Now you need to restore the registry using the system restore files.

Click on "Fix a Corrupted Registry" in my sig, and read through the entire article. Do the steps at Part 2 to restore your original registry from system restore snapshots.
