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.

    Accepted Solution

    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.
