Hi,

I have Windows 2000 Professional and while trying to delete the 'Brilliant Dig' spyware I also deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\. And now I cant open some web pages especially the javascript links. It says 'Error on page'

Also, I cant open Microsoft Word anymore. If i try to do so it says: "the windows installer service could not be accessed. contact your support personnel to verify that the Windows Installer service is properly registered."

When I try to open a word document saved on my C\drive it says: "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel."

In addition to these, when I try to update my AVG Anti virus I receive a message like there is a problem with the interface and it fails to update.

And finally some options like start-search-all files and folders and edit-find (on this page) commands do not work.

Hope you can help me with this problem?

Thanks junker39,

Have never formatted a laptop in my life. Hope i will not ruin the laptop even more. Have asked a computer shop here in London and the guy wanted 150 quid to fix it. The laptop itself would cost that much.. so, i decided to roll up my sleeves and learn about it.

You don't have to format it. Do a Repair of the system. It's an option when you start up with the 2000 CD in the CD drive. (you may to go into the BIOS and set to boot from CD if it's not set already.

Hi Junker,

Still the same..from the internet site you gave to me I did the registry scan of Registry Mechanic. It has found 870 critical problems and it said it can solve the problem if I buy the program.

Hi Junker,

Is there a good registry repair software you know which might sort this problem out without being have to format the laptop?

oz, you can't format and reinstall without the CD and if you had it, you wouldn't have to. You have to have the CD to repair or replace, either way.
