    XP does not have the same registry restore as win9x.

    if you want...at boot hit F8 then choose : last know good configuration


    otherwise you can perform a system restore if you can at least get to safe
    mode

    and if you cannot even get to safe mode...
    then there is the repair installation option

    If you copy everything in: WINDOWS\repair
    To: WINDOWS\system32\config

    Your registry will be as it was when you first installed your OS. If
    you've ever back'd up your registry, then to that point.
