window 7 ultimate sp1 crash & boot at black screen but no desktop

Dear Experts,

I have make few changes in registry to gain space from a ghost backup and then system crashes.
When i try to restart it, after window logo, there is a black screen with mouse button. Did not start even in safe mode, same black screen. Tried every method: repair, restore, etc..FAILED..
Plz help as i dont want to reinstall as have several softwares installed.

As far as I can think, you probably haven't tried using System Restore function because you can't boot even with safe mode.

Use your Windows installation DVD to boot your system, once you reach the setup screen, click on 'Repair this computer' at the bottom left. Now select 'System Restore' from advanced recovery options and restore your system to a point before this started happening.

Ask back if you have any query.
Hope that helps.

Yeah if you're fine, go for a clean install.

Remember NOT to modify the registry without knowing what you're doing. You were actually responsible for killing your system, so be careful with the registry.
