I ran a registery fixer on my system and now I can't get past the windows screen. It goes blank after the initial window wp. I tried the window system disk, but when I get to the screen to reload windows, the "R" optin is not there and the only option that I have is to do a fresh install. I need to get my data off before I do that. Is there a likely fix in the restore mode? I tried the bootfix command. Can I copy my files in the restore mode with a DOS command to a USB 160 GB hard drive that I happen to have? The registry optimizer was Advanced SYstem Optimizer. I've ran it before with no problems. I hope someone has some suggestions!!
