Checkdisk will not correct the registry hives. As you've disable the thing that could've saved you, there's really only one other thing you can try, and that would the the Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I turned off System Restore a long time
ago, which means that all of my System Restore points are gone.
Right now, Chkdsk is at 82% in stage 4, and it doesn't seem to have
discovered any new problems. I wish I knew whether or not this Chkdsk
is doing anything beneficial.
