Troubleshooting

Signs of Registry Problems

How can I determine whether Windows problems are caused by the Registry?

Registry corruption can take two forms: Either the Registry's database files can be damaged by an errant disk operation, or information can be entered incorrectly, by hand or by a buggy program. No matter what the cause, the result can be a system that won't run. (As I mentioned, I had this problem while writing this chapter. A bad display driver entry caused Windows to reboot over and over.)
