Greetings! I've been getting this "Application Pop-up" message at boot for several weeks now and have been unable to find the source!

"Windows - Registry Recovery : One of the files containing the system's Registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful."

Details are shown below. My problem is, I don't know which driver for which program is the culprit. There must be a log somewhere, but I'm not that good, yet... and yes, it's because I can't leave well enough alone. My affliction is called "Munchhausen syndrome by proxy". I make the computer sick so I can come to the rescue and fix it....

Are you sure you messed up the registry with a registry cleaner? Or you could have a virus. In fact I have this problem too!

Open Device Manager and expand all of the +'s. Look for any devices that have a red X or yellow exclamation point. Those would be the offending driver

Thank you for the responses. I use Registry First Aid. I MAY have deleted an entry...
In Device Manager, I had a yellow "?" under Display adapters. It was for the on-board Graphics Controller. I installed a PCI Graphics Card last Sept that replaced this one's function. After a few weeks I uninstalled the drivers for the old device. The "?" didn't go away so I recently disabled the device. Now I have a red "X", which makes sense.

With all that said, with this pop-up at boot, I would expect there's a log somewhere that specifically shows what was done. The message "One of the files containing the system's Registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful." should have details in a log.. i.e. the reg key, the data, or the device!!
