  1. My pc was acting up, so I decided to reinstall windows but keeping my files. Everything had gone how it should, until the pc restarted. It was stuck on the Windows loading "circle-thingy". At first I thought maybe it was just taking a long time to setup my files, so I left it over night and still beijg stuck, I decided to turn off my computer by holding down the power button for a couple of seconds. Now everytime I turn on my computer I see this..

    Problems that affect the installer are generally caused by faulty hardware. You don't say how it was acting up before but the most likely candidates for corrupted files are memory and hard drive.

    You could try running diagnostic programs like memtest86 as they can give an indication of what's broken and if you've got any spare or duplicate hardware (multiple memory sticks/drives) then you could try those.

    That file is part of the system registry - - proceed with the recovery process being offered on that screen.
