When booting the system sometimes I get the following error:
Windows encountered an error acessing the registry.
Windows will repair the registry for you and restart.

I will get this error maybe 3 or 4 times in a row and then not have it after several restarts and then it will reoccur. How can I find out what is causing the error and what can I do to fix it.
Any help would be great.

I have reinstalled and the errors continue. Here is some more details:
I get the error twice and then I dont get it once and then I get it twice and then dont get it once. This duplicates and repeats the same cycle every time.

I don't know if you can do this with WinME, but I know in Win98 you can boot to the DOS prompt and type "scanreg /restore". You will be presented with a number of older registry copies from up to about a week before. Try restoring an older registry. You might lose any programs you installed over the last few days but if the system works fine afterwards, you'll know it was your registry that was corrupt. If you still get the error it's likely then that you actually DO have bad memory. Just a thought

This is a new install so I can't revert to an old reg. I think I might have figured it out though. It was a shared memory setting in bios. You can set to agp or pci. Switched over to agp and all seems good hopefully.
Thanks,
