Registry Error POP up

By jdarden ·
Hi,
I recently tried to install Media Player 7, but when I rebooted, I started getting a registry error, and I had to reboot and use the back up registry.
Since than, everytime I install a new program, I will get this error when I reboot, and my new program will not work. I have found that I need to use the Registry Checker, and save the present registry information so that I will not get a registry error.
Anyone else having this problem.

Thanks,

Jim

Jim:
Bet you installed Media Player with other programs running in the background. If you did, you have basically corrupted your registry to the point of no return. Microsoft has a program called REG Clean that may help. Remove the media player and any programs that you installed after it. Start windows, use CTRL/ALT/DEL and close all programs except systray and explorer. Run Reg Clean. You may need to run it several times. After this do a cold reboot several times. Run reg Clean again. THis should fix you up. Always install programs with only systray and explorer running.

Try rebooting your pc and take f8 after post completes, or reboot in msdos mode if it will let you. From the command prompt run "scanreg /fix". This has as even chance of fixing your registry.
Good Luck,
Bo
