  • Hi,

    We could use "reset this PC" through user interface instead of reset registry, because of the modify of registry will bring a high risk to computer. All changes in registry will be set to default through Reset this PC.

    Go to Settings\Update & Security\Recovery\Reset this PC.

    Bests,

  • Windows XP fix was recovery console,& use System Restore,if the restore point is valid..Other repairs,307545

    307654/& others,maybe safe-mode/powershell,or safe-mode in cmd.Win 7 probably uses the same to repair regedit

  • You have 2 choices in Windows 7:

    • restore your system back to a point before you made your registry changes
    • do a repair install of Windows 7 by booting from your installation media.
