Registry Error

By D.C. ·
I get this error on startup:

"Windows encountered an error inthe system registry. Please close your programs and restart Windows now.

You may lose some of the information from the current session. Restarting will allow the registry to reinitialize.
RESTART WINDOWS <button>"
No matter how many times I restart, I get this error on startup.

Also, a dialup program gives this error:
"Run-time error 429

ActiveX component can't create object

Registry Error

You can fix registry using scanreg.exe with proper option. Just go to DOS mode then type:

scanreg/fix

The process sometime takes much time and the computer looks like hang (but it doesn't hang). The process will not able to be killed by control-alt-del, so be patient.
Better processor finish the job faster.

i ended up by using a newer copy of Norton Disk Doctor, and Win Doctor. It ran for 45 minutes, and found registry errors. I deleted them, and the problem dissapeared.

Rather than try to rebuild the registry from DOS, if you are runnung Win95, try upgrading to Win 98, if you are running Win 98, upgrade to Win98 SE. I've seen that error in Win95 before and and upgrade took care of the problem. If an upgrade is not possible, then a reinstall will probably be needed.

Restore or Fix Registry in the DOS mode. There is nothing to be nervous about.
At command prompt type the following
C:scanreg /fix or
c:scanreg /restore and then choose the last date in which you booted successfully.

I would trythe fix first.

I am with stuff@ on this one. This is definately a bad ram issue. Change out your ram. You might also try going into BIOS and check your RAM timing issues...let SPD set it for you if you have this option.
