Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage; Reg modified

by vintagehen / June 15, 2007 2:20 PM PDT

I run Vista, installed Nero Pro and it changed the default of the registry for all media files. Now when I open IE7 normal websites run fine, but it's impossible to run streaming audio or video.

I uninstalled Nero, but the reg has not changed. I don't know enough about windows/computers to start manually typing in the registry.

I made Windows Media Player and Media Center the new defaults for media files, but the reg still reads "Nero".

Someone please help!

A clarification...

Are .REG files associated with Nero, or are you still finding Nero references in the system registry? If it's the former you can change the file association for .reg files to regedt32.exe in C:\Windows\System32. If it is the latter I would run RegSeeker to clean out the obsolete entries.

Hope this helps,

Nero references still in registry. Ran RegSeeker, also Registry Repair Pro. Then manually typed in "mpgfile" in the registry, as opposed to what was therre from nero, and still no luck. There must be something simple I am missing.

How can I get Windows Media Player to default as my media player in the registry??

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
