    You may find something here .
    Do not use any program that scans and fixes your registry . Regardless of what the advertising promises . They have a habit of making whatever problem you have much worse . . If you do have a registry problem please bring it up here . People that are skilled in registry problems will do their best to help you and you will learn along the way . :) (y)

    hello ross and welcome to computers! The 2cents i can add to dusty sailor are to really hang around the forums and read posts if you want to learn. This is how i gained most of the skills ive acquired today. By simply reading about other peoples problems and how they are resolved. Also, feel free to check out our wiki, which is a large work in progress. Follow the advice here as they are helpful and can walk you through pretty much any problem. Just remember, were much cheaper than a trip to the shop with your computer. Furthermore you gain skill by fixing things yourself and learn how to prevent the problem from even happening in the first place. Have fun :)

    Here are some links to a discussion which helped me understand the registry a little better:

    http://www.geekgirls.com/windows_registry01.htm
    http://www.geekgirls.com/windows_registry02.htm
    http://www.geekgirls.com/windows_registry03.htm

    HOWEVER, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing! In the case of the registry, a little knowledge is a very dangerous thing! Don't do anything with the registry until you back it up and are very competent with what you are attempting. Many people on this forum will help you if you need to make registry adjustments.
