Hello... Well to begin with.. whenever i try to run regedit for whatever reason, a window pops up saying

"Windows cannot find 'regedit.exe' you may have typed the name incorrectly in the Run dialog, or another open program cannot find a system file. To search for a file click the start button and then click search"

Can anyone help me? Thnx in advanced.

What is your operating system? Have you done a search for regedit? Do you have a CD with the OS on it?

there are several viruses which can cause this sort of thing to happen.

not to worry, your C:\Windows folder has many mighty things within it. you need to re-extract the regedit program from the compressed archive files that Windows uses during it's install.

use the Run command and type 'msconfig; at the bottom of the window, click on 'extract file from archive' or whatever. type 'regedit.exe' in the box that just opened.

when it asks you where to 'restore from', type 'C:\windows\options\install\CAB'

and save in C:\windows\system. skip the backup option, and you're good to go.

or, download regedit here and unzip to your C:\ drive.
