    Hey everyone,

    Yesterday, I messed with msconfig and regedit. I disabled some msconfig items, and I set to 1 the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control>Session Manager>Memory Management>DisablePagingExecutive on regedit.

    I have since reenabled the items on msconfig and reset the DisablePagingExecutive to 0. However, my games STILL cannot access the internet. I tried disabling my McAfee and Windows firewalls, but that did nothing.

    Since then, my computer has been very slow, my games are not allowed to access the internet, and the worst part is sometimes I try to restart the comp and it goes to a blue screen and says "Checking File System on C: The Volume is dirty." It goes through 3 steps: verifies files, indexes, and security-something. This is so frustrating.

    Please help,
    Matt

    That means you have a chkdsk queued, let it complete the operation, should take about 15-20 minutes. After that, look in your Event Viewer (look in Control Panel>Administrative Tools) for system errors or application errors.

    Just a thought since zacke is on the money, ensure the machine doesn't hibernate during this process. That could cause this process not to finish properly.

    That's actually not applicable at this point, since it's not even inside of Windows.
