STOP: 0x0000006b Error Message

Today I went to work and we had 5 computers starting Windows 7 in repair mode. If you started Windows normally you got following blue screen error message: “STOP: 0x0000006B”.
After doing some research on the net I found out that this happens because the bootcache.cache is either damaged or doesn’t have the same size as the last successful start anymore. To solve this problem you just need to delete the file and restart the computer:
%SystemRoot%\system32\codeintegrity\Bootcat.cache

By the way Microsoft also offer a hotfix to this problem now:

Edit the registry of a remote computer on a domain

I don’t know if it is a default setting of windows 7 but on our domain you can’t access all computers registry because a service is set to manual and not started. Of course you need to be Domain Admin to be able to run this steps.

First of all you need to start the RemoteRegistry service on the computer:
sc \\COMPUTERNAME start RemoteRegistry

After that you can access it like usually in regedit:
File->Connect to Network etc.

To be on the save side you can disable it again:
sc \\COMPUTERNAME stop RemoteRegistry

Recreating Domain Profile in Windows 7

In Windows XP you could simply login as administrator and rename the profile folder. As soon as logged back in as this user everything was recreated. In Windows 7 and Vista it doesn’t work like this anymore. If you just delete or rename the profile folder and you try to log back in it is going to create you a temporary profile. To avoid that you need to open the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Search there for the profile you renamed or deleted and delete the folder. Reboot the computer and it should work again.
