Long story short, I delete the whole "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software" folder, so I tried to restore it with YARU (Yet Another Registry Utility), which should have worked. However, I actually REBOOTED before doing this, and Windows flashed me this screen that said "Setting Up Personalized Settings for...". It was like what you get when you have a new user account. To prove that, I launched Windows Media Player, and it asked me to set the settings. DAMNIT!
So then, I restored everything. The theme was changed to Windows XP, so I changed it back to Windows 7. However, I CANNOT get the Taskbar and Start Menu settings to change! I am an administrator user account, and the settings JUST WON'T CHANGE! I can apply a setting, and nothing will happen, and when I open the settings dialog again, it's like I didn't make any changes
I ran Startup Repair, but it couldn't fix my problem. Currently running SFC, but I need URGENT HELP!
