Hi, I was using Returnil System Safe 11 I believe(can't check now since windows crashed). So I did something a bit foolish which resulted in windows becoming unusable. I was using System Safe in Virtual Mode then tried to restart. However, It wouldn't restart and the screen came up saying that returnil System safe was preventing the system from restarting so I forced a restart. Now, The windows 7 won't boot up. Instead, It goes straight to the startup repair. I have tried running the startup repair. This said that the autostart failed due to a a Corrupt Registry. I looked at the regback folder in C:\Windows\System32\config but all those were updated after the crash so I guess I can't restore the registry from that. What I would like to know is if there is a way to fix this problem with Returnil but I'm not sure how to exactly. For instance, how exactly does the virtual mode work. Is there a folder where the copy of the OS is stored that I could use? Or are there backup copies of the system files anywhere? Or is it something else I hadn't thought of? EDIT: I am currently using Linux Mint booting from a USB drive to access the files. They seem to mostly be there. I can access the files using this to make some of the changes. Edit 2: startup repair couldn't update the registry and the files in C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack were updated mostly after the crash so I assumed these are bad now. This is why I asked if Returnil's Virtual Mode makes copies of the registry and if I could use those copies to fix the problem.
