Lost Regedit.exe on Windows ME

by CatPerson / February 18, 2005 4:49 AM PST

Was trying to clean up my computer. Used Registry Fix. Went through progam, said that it could not find regedit.exe. How do I get it? Where can I download it? What steps do I take to put it back on?
I am running an AMD 2 gig with 256 of memory, Windows ME.

The merjin web site had notes about it, but once you get the spyware out, you can extract the files off your windows CD.

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?
