Default Windows not booting!

I recently installed Windows XP and it does not boot. It will get to the Windows XP blue scroll bar screen and that's it. It will keep scrolling forever. I have to shut off the computer there and click use last configuration. It will then work. When I first installed it, it worked fine, I think it may not work because I did a few tweaks I saw on the internet on my registry. But it may not be the case because my CD drive also is not functioning properly.

If you mess with the registry these things happen. If you made a backup restore that. If not then you will have to re-install. The repair function doesnt affect the registry.

Would a system restore work?

If you have a restore point it might.
