to fix registries

In most cases, very bad idea. There is no reason to play with registry.

Did you try Safe Mode?

If it's full version, you can try repair installation. It won't touch your data.

i came accross to this info

IF YOU HAVE THE VISTA SP1 INSTALLED:
This will not work if you have the SP1 installed unless your Vista installation DVD includes the SP1, or you create a Vista SP1 slipstream installation DVD


i actually have SP1 as update, my DVD does not have SP1
how do i create SP1 slipstream?

You didn't read instructions carefully enough:

1. Insert the Vista DVD into the DVD drive while your current Vista is running.
WARNING: Do not boot the computer and run the Vista installation DVD from boot. A upgrade install will not work this way.

2. Click on Install Now to start the upgrade. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: If AutoPlay does not load the Vista setup screen, then open your DVD drive in Computer and click on the Setup file.

I don't think, it's possible.
You could install Vista on D to save your data from C though.
