Impatience Leads to Computer Problems. Please Help!

I feel really dumb about this but I inflicted a problem on my Compaq Presario 6000's Windows XP SP2 due to my impatience. It was in the middle of a tedious process and I made the impatient mistake of switching the power off during it. Upon restarting, I was given a message that Windows could not start because a DLL was corrupted. So, I used Compaq's Non-destructive system recovery, and once that was over, I had to re-register the computer via Microsoft's Welcome Process.

Unfortunately, the Welcome Process would not complete and it would hang every time I clicked "Finish." I tried to bypass it, but the Process couldn't be skipped. I would eventually get to the last screen to click "Finish" and that's where the problem lies, and I've tried the NDR three times so far.

This is the only time my computer has ever had a serious problem, and using the Recovery CD's brings me to the same NDR process. HD Formatting is not an option because I have alot of important files.

Can anyone help? Sad

I'm afraid I don't understand how that works. Isn't there just some way to bypass the Register Screen?
