Recovery Console freezes while repairing Windows

After editing the registry, Windows would log me off right after it started
up. I found some information about fixing this problem (eg
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windo...f-t15771.html).
However, after recruiting someone else's help, once Recovery Console was
started the selected to Repair Windows. That was going fine, but while
"Installing Windows" it hit a point with 34 minutes remaining while
"installing devices" and will not pass that point. I've left it going all
night and still no progress. My problem now is that no matter what I do when
I restart the computer it goes straight back to "installing devices" and
tries to pick up where it left off. How can I get this to stop? There's no
option when it starts up to do anything else from Recovery Console. I've
tried many times restarting the computer, but without fail every time it goes
back to repairing Windows, gets to that point and then stops.

Back up any data that you need to keep, and reinstall the OS, being sure to
slick the disk before starting the new installation.

I have a service which I create in vb.net. I'm trying to use the Recovery feature of Windows 2000/XP to restart the service if it fails to start. Looks like there are some steps that a service must perform for this feature to work, like settings the value of WIN32_EXIT_CODE. Does anyone know how to write a service using .net so it can use Recovery feature of Windows? Thanks Mike
