Click hereto fix c0000218 error

I couldn’t boot into Windows XP. I got this blue screen error during boot up.

STOP:C0000218{Registry File Failure}:
The registry cannot load the hive(file)
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SECURITY
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

I have never encountered this error before. I have tried to enter Safe Mode but still got this message. I have also chosen the ‘Most recent settings that work’ and got the same message. I have used the recovery console and run CHKDSK but could not fix this problem. I have also checked WINDOWS folder and found the SECURITY.LOG file.

Maybe it’s a registry error. How can I fix this problem ? How can I restore my registry ? I am currently running my backup OS, Win98SE. I have not installed SP 1 for my XP. I have installed the Blaster Worm patch and scanned the system regularly.

It’s a corrupted registry. Personally, I would reformat. Here’s a possible alternative…
