Blue screen stop error ***STOP: 0X00000007E ...

Cripes !  
I don't need to track down the source, I have some suspects in mind.
But I need to be able to get back into the OS somehow to fix what I need to.

It won't let me in via safe mode, nor via safe mode / c.p., and no dice trying the
"last windows login that worked" (sure, like that one has ever worked).

So if anyone can help me get back into windows somehow, I'd be most relieved.
THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE.

What are the suspects is the first ??
Laptop or Desktop.
When it boots does the bios give you an option to go into repair or recover mode, which is included in almost all new systems.
more details would help...

Of course. Sorry.  Desktop.  

My bios screen does not offer the option to go into any kind of a repair or recover mode; however it did let me do a hardware test, which ran and proclaimed I have no errors on my hard disk.

Suspect:  I made a change in the registry previously, but I did export the entire thing just before making the change.
What I did was to try and disable REMOTE REGISTRY by changing any parameters I found for it to zeros.  
Not the smartest idea I've ever had, but I will not allow that to run on my machine, and had a good clue that somehow something had been modified to allow it to run.  lesson:  never sit down and open regedit when you're angry.
Let me know if I can tell you anything else that would help.
THANKS. Jennifer

I have noted several other sites (having google'd the stop error) where the complainant was able to get into windows anyway.  Not so here.  I have no response from the blue screen, and have to pull the main power cord in order to restart.  When i do that, I can get into the bios, but that's ALL.

If you have your XP OS installation disk run a repair.  Don't choose the first repair option but the one you're presented after you accept the EULA.  Really easy fix for some BSOD and does not take that long.  If you don't have an installation disk, find some program that will give a DOS window with options (Vista disk perhaps) and then you can navigate to your desktop via the command window and import your .reg file.  Let me know how it goes.

I do believe I have that installation disk someplace.
Let me go try and scare it up, and I'll try your suggestions.
I will report back with the result.
It will probably be sometime tomorrow morning (unless
I get a second wind really soon).
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP !

You say you "exported the entire thing" before doing it. Which entire thing? Just certain keys? The entire registry?

The point here is that you should be able to very easily restore the backed up files to their original location using the recovery console.

By 'the entire thing'  I meant I exported the whole registry in its entirety.
I'm looking forward to proving you right.
Thanks for your comment.

Anything less than a perfect solution here was my fault, not that of the Experts.
