I don't think it would be advisable to simply run into the registry and start deleting those values. If you wish to, be my guest, but make sure you backup the registry in case something goes wrong:
I recommend trying this more simple approach to backing up the registry.
1. Click Start
and type in "regedit
" (no quotes).
2. Next, click the File
3. Select a location from the resulting box and give your backup registry a
name. Something like: Regbackup 01-21-2006.
<-- I just put todays date.
Just a quick note: by default, Windows backs up the registry when you shut down your machine. The above is probably best used for those (like myself) who are editing registry settings, such as we are about to do!
If you don't wish to edit the registry, I recommend you follow the HijackThis
preparation guide which can be found here
. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.
As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis
" log in a new topic in the forum found here
. Please add your system infomation
and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.
