  1. Matt – hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and select “Task Manager”. When Task Manager opens, select “hotfix.exe” under the Processes tab and click “End Process”.
    Then from Task Manager select “File” -> “New Task (Run…)” and type “Redegit”. From here you can navigate to the appropriate registry keys as mentioned in the guide above.
    Hope this helps.
