Tried a simple memory upgrade on my Dell Optiplex GX-110 [some see it coming already....] and ended up with a toaster instead of a computer. Last wicked little message before crash was: 'System Configuration file is missing', this after several boots to try to save the poor thing. Nasty crash.
Thank God for Uniblue Registry Booster! One of the best little programs I've come across in all my years of business & personal computers!! I was able to restore the Registry to a rollback and got a very good result. Lots of work left to do of course, like:
Boots fine and quickly after replacing blown modem & some cleanup. Now when I open any programs like Internet Explorer 6, click an IE link, or open Control Panel, My Documents etc. getting a popup: 'Windows Installer' saying 'Windows Installer Preparing to install' followed by a second popup,
'Windows Installer' - 'The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removeable disc that is not available'. I hit 'Cancel' and then these popup 2-3 more times, then program loads normally.
Also Outlook Express is adding 3-4 copies of every message and server connection doesn't want to shut off when I close, keeps loading, have to kill the dialup connection to stop it.
So, programs are loaded but the O/S is not configured correctly to recognize them? Any easy solutions? 'Easy' because I'm not all that sharp....
