XP Home SP1 P4 2.4 Gig
Got a microsoft installer error, the one stated here.
So I followed the M$ advice and had a major disaster.
After rebooting, no apps have any icons or program affiliations.
System Restore, My Computer, Explorer, Control Panel are all non-functioning.
If I boot to Safe Mode w command window, I can get to the registry editor, but so far have not been able to
fix the problem.I should have backed up the registry first, but I haven't been able to import the HKey_classes_ROOT from another computer anyway. It says there are errors and won't import it.
Looking at permission for that KEY, it didn't have SYSTEM in the list, so I added it and gave it FULL permissions.
If I could get System Restore to function, I would just go back.
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?
