wasnt sure where to post this, so i thought id try here. Up until recently my laptop started displaying broken icons on my taskbar. after extensive googling, deleting the Iconcache.db and running several registry scanners, i noticed alot of my registry files were corrupted or missing. attempting to repair them with windows registry repair hasnt worked, after it says it been repaired, i run the scan again an it still comes up with the same corrupted/missing registry files. Ive tried restoring my laptop to factory condition, but running the registry scanner i still see alot of files broken/missing. is there any other way i can repair my registry without wiping my drive again? can anyone plz help?
