    from your question it seems you are not really confident enough to tweak registry, as it is the most vital file on which the whole of windows performance depends.

    anything happens to this file or some omitted values, some wrong entries, the system will halt for good.

    There is a utility tool in Windows , REGEDIT, which can be typed in the COMMAND PROMPT found in START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES, the program will open the registry editor which can be used to edit registry.

    There are third party softwares which can be downloaded and installed in the computer to clean and edit registry. Handle with exterme care, corrupt registry will render your system dead!

    There are many ways to repair your registry: from System Restore, to your installation disk. There are also many Registry Cleaners on the Internet that will do this specific task for you.


    2
    Unfortunately, if you do a Google search for a Registry Cleaner, the first pages are filled with Registry Cleaners that toot they are free, but scam you into buying them after a quick scan of your registry.


    3
    These programs will show you how many errors there are in your registry and will offer to repair the first 3 or 4 errors. That isn't going to help you.




    There are a few legitimate FREE registry cleaners. One that is definitely for free is the Eusing Free Registry Cleaner.


    4
    Go to the Eusing website (in resources). Click on the download tab or any of the Mirror sites. Once it downloads, click Run and install the program. Once the program opens it will ask for a registration code for a donation.


    If you observe carefully, there is a SKIP tab. If you want to donate you can. If you don't want to donate and get this application for FREE, just click SKIP.


    5
    Click the blue letters "Scan your registry" and wait until the scan completes. It will show you anywhere from a few to hundreds of errors. Click "Repair Registry"

    Dear friend,
    You can restore your registry files manually to an earlier point by going through the steps outlined below. The process is involved and requires some careful typing.
    1. Keep tapping F8 during the early boot phase.
    2. Select Safe Mode Command Prompt from the menu.
    3. Log on as Administrator if prompted.
    Hope this would help
    4. Select Repair when prompted.
    5. Select the Command Prompt.
    6. Identify the correct drive letter for your Windows installation.
