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 \)

Sorry, not sure what's going on there.


Maybe someone else can jump in with any ideas.
