Stop error possible corrupt registry

I have been battling this problem for a while now.
A while back I turned off the computer and it went to the shutdown screen, then hung, so I hit the power button. The next day when I logged into MY profile (someone else had used it between the previous night and then without a problem) and I got a temporary profile. I restarted only to get the stop error.
I have tried using the win2000 disk to repair, but that seemed to have only screwed it up more.
Windows now doesn't recognize that I have a windows OS on there to repair.

I have the computer dual-booted with mandrake so I am able to get at the data. I can mount the windows drive no problem.

Is there a way to reset the registry in windows 2000 ? I had found a way to do it in win9x, but apparently winnt is run differently.

Thanks

My guess is your hard drive is going south.  Try running vendor tools on the drive to see if you drive is having integrity issues.

I would love to try regCleaner...except I can't get into windows at all. The stop error comes up before the log in screen does. Is there a unix version by any chance? (I didn't see one)

The hard drive is fine, Mandrake runs great on its partition and I can access ALL data from the windows partition.
