My pc (win xp pro)refused to boot,all i got was a stop error:c0000218(registry file failure)
at \systemroot\system32\config\software.
I had to re-install windows,but what could have caused such a failure?
Norton did`nt detect any viruses
Thanks.

Enter c0000218 into Google and you'll find loads of entries - far to many to list - they should be helpful in preventing a repeat. It looks like a common error but not a virus issue.
