    Hi.
    Couple of problems:

    Whenever I log on to my PC, it displays a message saying that one of the registry entries was missing and had to be recovered from a previous version. I don't understand what this means and how to sort the problem out.
    Also sometimes when I log onto my PC sometimes the theme has changed from Windows XP to windows classic (although in the display properties simply shows as Windows XP (modified) and i cannot change this to Windows XP theme.
    Then the other day when i logged on, i went into outlook 2003 (where i had everything set up) and the mail accounts had all dissappeared. . . I don't know why. . . yet my mail remained in the folders i had previously put them in.

    Is there any way to sort these problems out? Are they all related? I don't understand it! Help!

    Also i get a message sometimes saying something like "memory at reference ........... could not be.........
    what does this mean? How can i fix it?

    Please help me! I'm not sure what to do!

    Regards
    Tim

    You have windows xp, do a system restore, go back to a later date. See if that works. Let me know.

    If you could get the exact error and write it down then post it this would be a great help towards fixing the problem?

    I tried the system restore, and the same thing keeps happening. . .

    Also with regards to the actual message, do you mean the memory one?

    Thank you both for replying!

    Warmest Regards
    Tim

    Actually I really mean all of them because trying to fix a computer with out the error messages is just guessing at the fix.

    This is the memory one. This is only occasionally. . .

    The Registry one, thats comes up every log on is:

    "One of the files containing the system's Registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful."

    Regards
