Windows 7: Put my laptop back to factory settings

Put my laptop back to factory settings

I just spent 8 hours putting my laptop back to factory settings. I had a problem with the administrator and password and apparently that was my only choice. I downloaded all the Windows updates. I now have one update left and I get an error code 063 which indicates a registry problem. How could I possibly have a registry problem? Why doesn't windows give you a registry fix rather than all the other offers that seem to appear.
