Help, I have lost my Regedit file in WinXP Home

I was cleaning up my computer using Spybot, Adaware and Regedit. I went to go into my registry after I got rid of all of the viruses and unwanted tracking software and it was gone. The file in Windows-regedit.exe no longer exists.

Can anyone help me or lead me in the direction to rectify this problem. I run a children's charity called Computers For Kids, www.computersforkids.ca and this is the main computer that I do all of my charity work on. I know I can make backups of everything and transfer to another computer but that would take weeks. I have over 180GB of information that I use to run the charity.

If I am in the wrong forum I apologize as this is all very new to me.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Do you have a bootable windows XP installation cd? You can try running the system file checker. To do this, put the cd in the drive, then go to start, run and type the command>
sfc /scannow

Please note the space between sfc and /scannow.
