  • This all you need to know to fix your code 19 registry error and it is so simple. Just go to IsoHunt  and type registry repair tool for vista and scroll down to the sixth entry on the list, Applications Windows RegCure 2008 v1.5.0.1. Download it and install it and you will be watching DVD's better than you ever have. NO BS it works great and it is completely free of charge. Or just use the links below to get there.
