Does it just stop at the first screen, or does it give you a message or anything?

If the registry is hosed, so is everything on your hard drive as far as your operating system goes. Dunno about the rest of your data.

You can try to reinstall Windows if your restore disks will let you. If not, wipe and begin again.
