As it stands the registry does not appear damaged... But, lets give it a shot

From the recovery console command prompt type the following pressing enter after each line :

CD C:\windows
md tmp
 copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
 copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
 copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
 copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
 copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

 delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
 delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
 delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
 delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
 delete c:\windows\system32\config\default

 copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
 copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
 copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
 copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
 copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default


Then try a reboot

OK there is a restore point to chose from

  • Reboot your system using the xPUD bootable USB you just created.
  • Your system should now display a xPUD desktop.
  • Select on the File icon; on the right pane click on the "mnt" folder and highlight "sdb1" - this is your USB device.
  • Click on the "Tool" menu and select Open Terminal

  • In the open terminal window, type in the following
bash rst.sh -r

  • You will be asked for the number of the Restore Point  to use, type in 428 then press "Enter".
    428 corresponds to System Restore done dated Dec 23 14:26
  • The program is finished when it say's "Done".
  • Type "Exit" and uninsert your USB stick.
  • Click on the "Home" icon and then click on "Power Off". Choose "Restart"
  • Reboot into Windows normal mode

Ok did that and restored.  Now hangs again on aswrvrt.sys.  Shall I use the same frst file to fix this problem or do I need to send you another one?

Back to the mup.sys hang ?

You can do a google but here is "XP" repair install: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
Make sure Essexboy gives you go-ahead and direction on this.
