Summary: I was attempting to remove a persistent game title from my cluttered Programs list
so I entered regedit (register edit) and tried to find it (failed) and in the process I deleted a few other persistant already deleted games under "Uninstall" registry , but then I made clownish mistake of pressing another register folder list and deleted something called "Volatile Environment" under HKEY/Current User and then I couldn't access the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs list anymore (it wouldn't respond to my clicks), and when I restarted the PC,
I failed to enter the regular restart and was stuck forever at the start up screen, also the usual Login greeting words didn't pop up, and only some mojibake flashed on the screen for a second before leaving me eternally stuck at the loading screen , so I'm guessing the deleted file was something important. additionally, I can still acess the BIOS Setup Utility.I've got the tool doing a HDD Diagnostic test but its taking some time.
So... help plz? :o
I'm typing this on a spare, slower Win7 computer btw
