    Have you tried to restore the registry to a point before this occurred? At the command prompt type: "SCANREG /Restore"

    without the quotes and a space after scanreg. You'll be given dates to set the registry back to.

    :)

    Yes, at the command prompt. You should then be given a choice of (usually) five prior dates to whcih you can restore your registry to.

    Make sure we got this right.......you're at the C: prompt, right?

    You typed scanreg (space)/restore, hit enter, right?

    ...and NOTHING happens?

    Now I'm confused. :confused:

    :) Make sure you are typing it correctly. It should be


    scanreg /restore (foward slash, not \)
