| Hi everyone,
| I have a dual-boot system vista and gutsy.
| All was working fine until today.
| Now when I try to open vista, it goes into an endless loop of
| starting to load ... bsod ... reboot.
| When I select vista the second time, I am given the option to enter
| last good known configuration and safe mode. I have tried both of
| these and the same thing happens.
| So... now for my question.
| Are there any utilities I can use from within gutsy to edit/clean my
| vista registry?
| I know ther are tools for doing things like resetting passwords, so
| I suspect the tools are available somewhere, but in all my googling
| I haven't found them.
| Any help would be greatly appreciated.
| My vista re-install cd is 1,500 miles away, and would prefer not to
| have it shipped if possible.
is there no restore partition?
