Always use registry fixes as a LAST resort! it is too risky to mess up your pc even worse! Make sure you run a good virus program and spware remover, as well as running cleanmgr and doing a defrag before messing with the registry. If that still is not fixing it then make sure you back up any valuable data before messing with the registry.

Hi, just rec'd below from Reg Mech reference your problem..

Ed, thank you for contacting PC Tools.

Can I please ask you to first un-install Registry Mechanic completely. Reboot in Safe Mode and install & Run Registry Mechanic from in here.

1. Close Registry Mechanic (if open).

2. Navigate to Start - Programs - Registry Mechanic - Uninstall Registry Mechanic.

3. When uninstallation is complete, please re-start your computer.

4. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files and delete the 'Registry Mechanic' folder (if it still exists).

5. Download Registry Mechanic from http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic, Click Download in the left menu > Save the file, rminstall.exe, to a location on your computer

6. Reboot into Safe Mode
To Restart the computer in Safe mode:
*When the computer starts back up, begin immediately by pressing the F8 key repeatedly until the Windows Startup menu appears with various options.
*By using the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard, select 'Safe Mode'.

7. Navigate to where you saved the file. Find 'rminstall' icon and double click it to launch the Registry Mechanic installer.

8. Attempt to run Registry Mechanic in Safe Mode.

Other Things to Use

Adaware is a good program but the free version is a little too limited. After using adaware I would scan using AVG AntiSpyware from free.grisoft.net then I would use Spybot Search and destroy, It gets rid of some of the registry keys used by trojans, malware, spyware , etc... Then, Download and install Microsoft's windows defender. After you use all those your pc should be fine, I DON'T recomend using any kind of registry cleaner/scanner other than spybot search and destroy because you can really mess up your system even more. If you feel you must do it however, I would back up all my important documents pictures and music first. I would recomend using chkdsk from the repair console on an XP disk, or at worst, a repair installation before recomending any registry scanning or cleaning software.
