Blue screen c0000218 & restored files

Hello,

after i had that blue screen and read up all the walkthrough here and in the knowledgebase i fixed my system that i can boot in windows now..
everything seem to work , just that i lost the appz that i have installed but thats not a big deal.

The only problem i have is:

i cant load Add/Remove Programs under control panel. i double click it and nothing loads.

I restored the files

system,default,security,software,sam

from \repair folder

i still have the damaged files that i have backed up also.

appwiz.cpl under start / run dont load it either.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

is the key for the list of the software , i know that but thats not the icon that loads it..

if you guys have a idea, any help is appericiated.

When you replaced the "SOFTWARE" file, you effectively blew out any software that you had installed;  you will need to re-install all the software;  You do not have an uninstall option, because the software on your sys is not "installed";  sure, the files are there but....

You could delete the offending directories and re-install the s/w in question, but you are already so close to a total rebuild, you might as well go all the way.  Backup your data to another system, then FDISK your way into a stable system..

Hello,

i made a mistake at my problems explanation its not "software" that i was meaning its add/remove programs, since its a german OS i made a mistake at the naming, and i allready solved the problem in the mean time by:


regsvr32 %systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl

thx anyways for your help
