Registry files error/missing - can't get to login

  red030 09:16 30 Aug 2018

Hello, My original issue was my laptop wouldn't load to the login screen as it was stuck on a windows update saying 64% complete but then it kept restarting and returning to the same screen over and over again.

So i tried to fix this issue with a Youtube video but I've made it worse now as when i logon a screen pops up saying something like my registry files are missing/corrupt or there is an error with them.

Unsure how to fix this issue, any help would be highly appreciated.

If this helps the whole issue started when i was rebooting and clearing my whole laptop - i powered it off as windows was reinstalling late at night so didn't want to leave it on over night. The next day when i powered it on - the 64% update screen kept popping up.

power on then off again after 5 seconds - repeat three times on fourth let it boot should boot to the repair options

from thee you can select system restore (if it will let you) otherwise you might have to do a rest and use the option to keep data (note reset means you will need to reinstall third party programs on completion of the reset)

I've tried doing a system restore but it doesn't let me, how would i do this reset and install third party programs?

1.Select Repair your computer.

  1. On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot. From there, you can:

  2. Restore from a system restore point by selecting Advanced options > System Restore. This will remove recently installed apps, drivers, and updates that might be causing your PC problems. Restoring from a restore point won’t affect your personal files.

  3. Select Reset this PC to reinstall Windows 10. This will remove apps and drivers you installed and changes you made to settings, but lets you choose to keep or remove your personal files.

I haven't created a system restore point in the past though?
