registry problems

  1. I have a toshiba satellite A70 with windows XP profesional at home. I also
    have one at the office connected to a network. I copied the registry of that
    computer (office) on a DVD, then I opened that registry at my computer at
    home. Now my home computer is acting very strange. How can I recuperate my
    original registry at my home computer?

    You may be able to do a system restore from before you messed it up. There
    are other more difficult measures that you can check out in the
    Knowledgebase.

  4. I´ll be honest. I was getting fed up with the casino pop ups, the Win anti
    Virus pop ups, and even a porn pop up(i have a cable modem connection, not a
    dial up). I ran spybot search and destroy and every time it came up with a
    Magic Control.Agent at a registry location. It never could clear it up. So I
    did this desperate measure!

    I can certainly relate, i spent over a week getting one of those situations
    fixed on my wifes machine. If you don't have a recovery file from before
    the program took over, sometimes a fresh start is the best approach.

  7. Hello ,
    Your best bet is going to be to attempt to follow this article to copy back
    the registry files:
    307545 How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP
    from starting
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;307545

    System Restore would be doubtful. Some of the restore points information
    is stored in the registry, so the restore points that are presented are the
    restore points that would be available on the Office machine, not the
    Restore points that are on the home machine.

    Plus which registry files did you replace? All of them or just one or two?

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

  8. As John says, in situations such as this, a clean install is the only
    resort, even Microsoft recommends it as the best way to remove malware from
    the system.

    The article that Darryl recommends is the one I was referring to in my
    original post about the knowledge base. I have used it and it worked for my
    purpose. It sure is a lot easier to do if you are dual booting and can work
    from the other system. Hope you have good luck. Incidentally I had the
    following error I need to fix at the time Stop: c0000218 {Registry File
    Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file):
    \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate

  13. The problem is that I do not have access to the office computer, I do not
    longer work there.

    Well, unless you backed it up before trying to superimpose the office
    registry on it, you'll probably have to reinstall the OS. Before doing
    that, however, try using System Restore to return to a point before the
    "experiment."

    If you use the link Darryl gave you, you don't need access to the office
    computer. The file that you would copy is probably safe from anything you
    have done. All you have to do is copy it to the right place. It is easier
    if you have a second O/S but you can do the copies from the Recovery
    Console. It is still feasable if you don't want to reinstall. I was
    fortunate that I had a second system to work from.

  16. Good news, bad news. The good news is that apparently the adware spyware has
    been removed. No more win antivirus 2006 and casino pop ups up to now. In
    relation to the registry mix up I read the link (it looks a bit complex, I am
    not a computer expert). I believe his is what beleive the registry mixup is
    causing now When itype an email and press send a window comes out and
    saysthat says windows installer comes
    out when I want to run certain programs. I believe all this is caused by the
    registry mix up. Any suggestions?

  17. Good news, bad news. The good news is that apparently the adware spyware has
    been removed. No more win antivirus 2006 and casino pop ups up to now. I
    read the link regarding the registry fix, it looks a bit complex. The
    problems that are occurring right now are the following:
    1)My computers DVD multirecorder is not working properly. This could be
    because the office computer DVD recorder was not a multi recorder DVD, but a
    plain DVD-ROM recorder. Did the registry mix up change this?
    2) When I want to send an e-mail a window that says:"Windows installer: the
    function you are trying to use is on a network resource that is not
    available. Click on accept to try again or find an alternate path to the file
    that has the installation package PRJPROE.MSI. " I click accept and then it
    says "the access route could not be found.....PRJPROE:MSI" This could be
    because the office computer was connected to a office network of about 10-15
    computers. Did the registry mix up change this? Please correct me if I´m
    wrong.

  18. Hello ,
    Yes both of those issues can be caused by the swap in registries.
    <1)My computers DVD multirecorder is not working properly. This could be
    <because the office computer DVD recorder was not a multi recorder DVD, but
    a
    <plain DVD-ROM recorder. Did the registry mix up change this?
    The installed driver or the filter driver is probably not present or not
    correct for for the multi-recorder.

    <2) When I want to send an e-mail a window that says:"Windows installer:
    the
    <function you are trying to use is on a network resource that is not
    <available. Click on accept to try again or find an alternate path to the
    file
    <that has the installation package PRJPROE.MSI. " I click accept and then
    it
    <says "the access route could not be found.....PRJPROE:MSI" This could be
    <because the office computer was connected to a office network of about
    10-15
    <computers. Did the registry mix up change this? Please correct me if I´m
    <wrong.
    Yes there are multiple pointers in the registry if not hundreds of
    locations that probably point back to the install locations for various
    apps.
    Since the registry was from the Office machine, those install links point
    back to the network install points rather than prompt for the local install
    point.

    Your registry is in a very bad state right now.


    Thanks,

  19. O.K. The rest of the system is working fine, except for these two glitches.
    What do you suggest me to do? Reinstalling the whole operating system sounds
    a little drastic don't you think?
