Hi to all! My XP Pro is useless due to corrupted registry which was (I suspect) caused by an uninstallation software that I use that creates snapshots of registry before and after installation. I can boot into windows, desktop wallpaper appears and nothing else for about 5 minutes, then everything else loads. The registry corruption affected services that are essential for proper xp operation, such as DHCP client (which prevents me from accessing internet), windows firewall service is also stopped and cannot be started, universal plug & play and a few others. I did a "Repair" of Windows with my XP CD, but that did not seem to cure the problem. Does anybody know a way to bring my services to life without reinstalling XP?
