Although I'm no expert in BSODs, I will try to help you as best as I can. First off, you shouldn't play in the Windows Registry unless you know what you're doing and have made a backup. May I ask why you removed an entry from your Registry?
You mentioned BSOD... Do you have any error code? If it's easier, you can take a picture of the BSOD an upload it here.
Thank you for the quick reply.
The BOSD error is : Ox000021a
Who removed the entry from the Registry ? : Autorun (from Sysinternals) I just picked the registry listed there and deleted it from Autorun. After I deleted I checked Regedit ; the entry was gone (I was so proud of myself
.... not so much now
Aprat from what I said in my OP I also tried the followings :
sfc /scannow ---> This goes to 100% but says after "resource protection could not perform the requested operation "
I tried : Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth --> This sais /Online is not an option of DISM . Therefore I gave up on that option
Lastly I just tried a solution at Bleeping to restore registry https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums ... ?p=4371456
This did not work either
Here what the solution said :
Open a cmd prompt and type :- (type cmd's exactly as you see here, syntax is important)
bcdedit | find "osdevice"
(press enter, the | is called a pipe and is above the \ key), it will return ...OS device partition...X (where X is a drive letter) use this letter in the following cmd's. Often in 10 this will be D (do not worry if C: drive is the normal OS drive things work differently here, we will use D in this example)
D: (press enter)
cd D:\Windows\System32\ Config (press enter)
Dir (press enter)
The contents of the system32 \config file will open, if the regback date, is before this happened, then continue (if not you have lucked out)
cd regback (press enter)
copy *.* D:\windows\system32\config (press enter)
Type:- ALL to the proceed prompt, that's it, the registry has been restored to the date of the regback, see how you go.
