Although you asked for a Linux registry repairer for Windows, and this is a Linux Forum, go to tweaking.com and download their freeware. It is excellent. For scannow you will however need your Win XP install disk. Later versions of Windows do not. Go through the processes, and you have a good chance of repairing Windows.

Another way...

This is way late reply I know but you can also just:

1) Download and burn an iso of a Windows CD from Microsofts Website.

2) Boot off the CD.

3) Press Shift+F10 to bring up a command prompt when it asks you what keyboard layout and language etc.

4) Type regedit and press Enter to open regedit.

5) Select the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key and click File->Load Hive

6) Browse to the Windows folder of target, then into system32, then into config

7) In there is the SOFTWARE (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software), SYSTEM (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System), SAM, DEFAULT, SECURITY files. Open the one you need.

8) Give it a temporary name, ie "temp_software"

9) Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and you should see "temp_software" there.

10) Do you viewing/editing

11) After that make sure you select the "temp_software" hive and click File->Unload Hive.


Hope that helps anyone.

Ophcrack is the tool i am using currently. You can reset windows password very quickly with this tool. And i have tested it on my Windows 7.

Ophcrack !

you are aware that a PASWORD cracker is not a tool to edit the windows system registry

and is mostly against the forum rules

mind you this is a 5 year old thread

tools for XP will be of almost no use on win10
