I can't download anything on this machine and when I run anything like OTL.exe or GMER.exe it is running in the system repair environment on the X: drive so I can't see the "real" registry.
Vista is new to me and I thought it had a fool proof system repair utility but I must have found a way to break that. I hate to install from scratch because of the software that is installed but if there is no other alternative, let me know.
Thank you for your help!
