Optimize Killed Windows

After registering and running Optimize (newest version), when I try to boot up, I get many checkdisk screens, then when it finally tries to boot into windows, I get a BSD (blue screen of Death! message is as follows:

 

STOP: C0000218 (Registry File Failure) the Registry cannot load the hive (file):\systemroot\system32\coonfig\SECURITY or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

 

This is very bad for me, I use my computer for work, etc. I am unable to boot safe mode or anything else.

Are you using Windows XP and do you have a CD? If yes, go into setup (BIOS) and set the computer to boot from the CD, if necessary. Then boot from the CD, and at the appropriate screen, hit the "R" key to boot into the Recovery Console. Once in there, run chkdsk /r to try to restore the files.

 

The next things to try if that doesn't help are:

 

Registry repair:

Repair Install:

Yes, I am using XP Pro. I have tried to get it to boot from the CD and it won't do it. I can't get it to do anything but run thru checkdisk and then BSD.
