    When windows starts I get an error message that says "Unable to locate," and then it show a bunch of Japanese symbols, it then tells me to locate them in the registry and delete them, but I can not find them in the registry. Thats not all that I think is screwed up in my registry. Is there any type of registry checker that can tell my what I should add or delete to my registry, and tells me where to locate each item? Thanks! BartMan45. :confused:

    Start/Run Type: msconfig
    on the Startup tab, uncheck anything that has anything to do with the "Japanese symbols"

    I did that and it worked. Is there any way to locate them in my registry, and delete them?

    The name in msconfig that you unchecked is what you should be looking for when you are searching the registry.

    Before you do anything in the registry,BACK IT UP!!! In case you make a mistake and have to restore it.
    Open the registry,from the "Edit" menu,select "Find",type the name you're looking for and delete what is found.Then Hit the F3 button to find more,again,delete what is found.
    keep doing the F3/Delete thing untill you see a small box telling you "Finished searching the registry"
