    Word of warning. I ran these .reg files, restarted computer, then it failed to get into Windows. Or it sort of did, to a black screen with a cursor and seemingly low res.

    Safe mode has the same issue.

    Windows Vista/ 7/8/8.1/10 keep a regular backup of the registry handy in case you need to overwrite a corrupted registry. By default, the RegIdleBackup task runs every 10 days, so that’s as far back as you would lose if you replaced the current registry with the automatically backed-up files. You can find the backed-up registry files in \Windows\System32\config\RegBack folder.


    Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

    Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

    Code:
     Dir C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack

    Above command will list files stored within RegBack folder and there file size, make sure files are not zero size if they are do not follow below instructions.



    Please replace partition letter C: with Windows installed partition letter. When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

    Please type below commands into Command Prompt and for each command you have typed press Enter key.



    Code:
    Ren  C:\windows\system32\config\SAM         SAM.BAK
    
    Ren  C:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM      SYSTEM.BAK
    
    Ren  C:\windows\system32\config\SECURITY    SECURITY.BAK
    
    Ren  C:\windows\system32\config\DEFAULT     DEFAULT.BAK
    
    Ren  C:\windows\system32\config\SOFTWARE    SOFTWARE.BAK
    
     
    
    Copy  C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SAM         C:\windows\system32\config
    
    Copy  C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM      C:\windows\system32\config
    
    Copy  C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SECURITY    C:\windows\system32\config
    
    Copy  C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\DEFAULT     C:\windows\system32\config
    
    Copy  C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SOFTWARE    C:\windows\system32\config

    This procedure assumes that Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 is installed to the C:\ partition. Make sure to replace C:\ drive letter to the appropriate Windows OS installed partition drive letter if it is a different location.


    Above commands renames the registry files at their existing location, and then copies the registry files from the RegBack folder to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder.

    Which ones did you run?

    If too many needed, it would be best to do a system restore or repair install instead.

    Thanks to all of you for the advice, I have already reinstalled Windows though but someone else might find it useful.

    As for which ones I ran, it was all of them so it's hard to diagnose. Though this means there is something wrong with 1 or more of them.

    ....... which registry key in all the Services included with the zip file is for Runtime Broker ?

    Is it that I can't find it or there is none for Runtime Broker in Services at all ?

    If there isin't where can I get a reg file key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Ole in its default configuration ...?...

    Hello Tommy,

    Runtime Broker is a Microsoft core process instead of service.

    What Is and Why Is It Running on My PC?

    ....... thanks for your reply.

    I figured this out by now, I got carried away and confused trying to fix a DCOM error because off the store apps problem after the 1803 update.

    Gave up on it, but apparently Microsoft is aware of the issue and the will release a fix in a couple of days, hopefully that's true .......

    So I should have read the whole thread before trying it. I screwed my Windows in an exactly similar manner. Black screen, cursor, occasionally with a loading circle progress bar. Did not resolve it yet as I am having some issues with creating a boot USB with Microsoft Creation Tool. Weird stuff. Trying again now to create the bootable USB for the third time, this time from a different computer.

    Hello yozness, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you needed to restore several services, then it's usually best to do a repair install instead without losing anything.
