I was trying to move the rest of my c\program files and c\program files x86 to another hard drive, as I tweaked the registry after I've installed a few things there.
I initally booted into a boot disk to change the name of c\program files/x86, booted into windows, realized a few things were broken, so I changed it back.
Then, folders were opening in new windows, contrary to the option in folder options
Did a few searches and someone suggested deleting the hkey_users\S-1-5-21-xxxxx-100\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer key
I did so, after I backed up that registry entry. I rebooted, windows was broken.
Now I'm unable to restore that registry file. I get the error: Cannot import "file namelocation ect": Error accessing the registry
My OS works, just a bunch of things are broken. I really don't want to do a reinstall. Please help. I've tried changing permissions on the registry to no avail.
