Registry Problems

by Dalty / November 19, 2005 3:09 AM PST

Lately I have been having problems accessing programs, Documents, you name it. Even if i go to the location of the file and click on it a message will pop up like: Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Napster\NapsterClient.exe' Make sure typed the name correctly and try again., (using napster as an example). I have even tryed changing the location of the file by going to properties but nothing seems to work. If anyone has and information about a way i can fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated because Internet Explorer is the only thing i can access.

can expect to have continued problems after you do what Grif said to do as long as you use Internet Explorer (change to Firefox) and P2P prgrams. So expect to run them daily just to stay ahead of them.

and life goes on...

try a system restore- Control Panel > Permformance & Maintenance, then system restore on the left. Follow the instructions and choose any earlier point of time (being a date in bold letters)as your restore point.

The forums here are full of problems introduced by registry cleaners. Only those that sell them claim it helps.

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?
