Registry Hive corrupt after repair of server 2003

I had to do a repair on a Windows 2003 server which was refusing to boot with
a corrupt filestructure.

The server is now running ok, but just before the CTRL-ALT-DELETE login
prompt I get a message that says;

"Registry hive (file): c:\documents and settings\Administrator\ntuser.dat
was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost"

If I click ok, the apply settings banner stays for another 10 seconds or so
and then I can log on normally.

I've created another admin account and logged in as that but I can't remove
ntuser.dat from the administrator folder as it's in use.

Any ideas?

Reboot the machine, log on under the other admin account,
then blow away the flawed administrator profile.

If that doesn't work try booting to safe mode with the second admin account.
Might work, might not...
