This is unclear

Also see above what???


This step involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes.

Go to Start Run and type: regedit
Click OK.
On the left side, click to highlight My Computer at the top.
Go up to File Export
Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch.
Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files".
Under "Filename" put RegBackup.
Choose to save it to C:\
Click save and then go to File Exit.

Or you can download and use ERUNTwhich is an excellent free tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Scroll down to #224 and click Show Control Panel on the Start Menu - in the left column. Go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save showcontrolpanel.reg to your desktop. Double-click on that file to allow the script to run and reboot when done. Since the script modifies certain registry settings your anti-virus package may warn you about it. Ignore the warning and allow it to run.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

If you mean "acknowledge"...a simple thanks will most likely do...whether via PM or as part of your thread :thumbsup:.

Easily done, you may benefit from reading various topics located at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum82.html (New User Orientation) :thumbsup:.

A thread is the same thing as any given topic started by a member. I can't tell you why they are called threads, only that they are :flowers:. A thread includes all replies/suggestions/comments to that particular post.

PM is abbreviation for personal message, one of the capabilities built into the forum for communication between members which may or may be relevant to a forum topic. PMs are often used among staff members and by members who want to contact BC Staff (and vice versa) about a given item that is not necessarily best conveyed in a forum topic. PMs are not meant to be used by members seeking consultation about forum business "privately" when forum business is best served...by the views of the many, not private communications between members.
