regedit not working windows 7 32 bit

I keep getting this when trying to run regedit
I have tried taking regedit from another windows 7 machine and putting it in c:\windows
that didn't work

I have also tried a SFC /scannow and that didn't solve the issue.

Run System File Checker from an elevated command prompt.
It repairs damaged system files and replaces missing ones.
Instructions here:

the user stated he already ran sfc

have you tried a clean boot?
run msconfig and check selective startup; uncheck load startup items and services
reboot and see if regedit runs
if so, you can check startup items and services one by one until regedit breaks

My answer obviously didn't fix the problem. I didn't read the question as closely as I should have.

Please consider redistributing the points to Seth.
