:thumbsup: Hi all,
I am new here... I got here because I was looking for a solution to a nasty problems with 404ads on my IE 6 browser. I finally fixed it myself by doing a system restore- do all windows applications have that? I dont know. I have XP.
I am not a computer geek but I love them.

I am having problems with my CDRW.
When I went into control panel and sound devices the sony CDRW it says
"cannot start this harware device because the configuration info (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged" Code 19
I am hoping someone has expeienced this and knows what I should do.

"System Restore takes a "snapshot" of critical system files and some program files and stores this information as restore points...", but generally will not include any application information, since it is designed to restore the Windows Operating System.
The correct procedure for resolving application problems is to completely unistall the application and then reinstall it.

Welcome, by the way, to BC!
