My win XP machine was running really slow so i decided (not a great idea in hindsight) to download and run CCleaner. I cleaned up files and registry settings (it makes you save a backup) and then i went to reboot the next day and now Windows wont start.
I basically get:
- The "You machine didn't shutdown properly message" where you can choose "Safe mode", etc..
No matter what choice I make (safe mode, last good configuration, normal mode, etc), it tries to start up windows then shows up a blue screen with a bunch of stuff but the main error is:
Then goes back to the Dell boot up screen and then back to step 1
Has anyone else experienced this? Are there any other suggestions on how to have my machine start up again or do you think its hosed? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I back up most of my files but I still hope the machine isn't worthless now. Any help would be appreciated to try to get back into Windows.
