    Windows 7 is no longer supported, so it's not surprising there is limited response on Microsoft forums.

    As you'll see on the SevenForums main page, there are quite a few current threads.

    Before I upgraded to Windows 10, SevenForums was one of my "go to" sites for several years.

    Sorry if this might sound stupid but is hive another program or is it registry?
    You can not open Windows registry at boot, because it is not loaded, you are probably opening something from an image, so in order to save any changes, you have to load Windows registry (hive) to be able to edit it.

    And are those codes what I put into the cmd? I'm very sorry i'm new to this sort of thing.
    That is just one way, how to get there to be able to open registry.

    So what you mean is my regedit isn't saving changes because i'm using it in recovery mode? That begs me to question, can I use cmd to change the registry for me instead? Also you don't have to reply if you don't want to, I know i'm breaking the website's policies.

    Yes, but you have to do it by loading the hive, in your case "SOFTWARE" like in the video.

    Alright I really appreciate it that you are still trying to help me out. So to load hive do I place HKLM/Software in the cmd? Sorry if i'm being really slow here.

    When you open regedit Select HKLM
    Go to Menu: File - Load Hive
    Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Config
    Select SOFTWARE (not logs)
    It will ask you for a name, input anything, like MYREGISTRY
    Then work within that key only and navigate to the:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    Fix the "Shell" value to "explorer.exe"
    Click on the key you have named, like MYREGISTRY
    Go to Menu: Unload Hive and confirm Yes to save it, restart.

    You're not exactly "breaking the website's policies".

    However, I will say that making changes to the Registry is dangerous, and could brick the system, making it unbootable.

    At the very least, you should back it up before going any further.

    Yes i've backed up the registry 3 times in case for that. Also thank you, I really thought I was. Sorry for being ignorant.

    UPDATE: After doing what Tairiku said the Chkdsk has now appeared(it hasn't for 3 days). I'm just gonna let it do its thing and i'll update you guys later.
