Hi! I've read through some past questions about this blue screen message, but I don't quite understand how I go about rebooting (or something similar sounding :) ) the hive...
Would anybody be able to guide me through it?
I'm pretty sure I still have my Windows XP disk, and if not I can probably find someone to borrow it off...
This isn't the only message that comes up, there has been another one with this:

Stop 0x0000007B


Oh! It was recently running on Vista, but it started freezing a few seconds after it loaded up, so our computer man reformatted it, and got it running on XP. It's been fine for a good week or two, but now it's playing up again.

It's my mum's computer, and she doesn't do anything on it besides play solitaire, so I don't have a clue what's happened.

Thanks in advance guys :)

Go here: http://support.micro....com/kb/307545/

Scroll down the page to "More Information" - the third box down under this sub-heading mentions your registry hive problem with "STOP Error c0000218".

The Registry is corrupted. Scroll further down and follow the repair steps.
