Hello AAZZ
There is an article here which should help you with your problem. Although some of it does involve tweaking the registry, it is made by Microsoft so you won't mess anything up!
However, just to be safe, before you do this, please back up your registry.
HOW TO BACKUP THE ENTIRE REGISTRY IN WINDOWS XP

Start > Run
type "regedit" (without the quotes). This will open the Registry Editor.
File > Export
Choose a location where you want to store your backup. Choose an easy to remember location, such as on your desktop.
Give it a easy to recognize name in File Name such as: regbackupMONTH with MONTH being the current month.
Save as type: Registration Files (*reg)
Export Range: All
Click on 'Save'


Hope this helps,
Charles

Hello,
The article should still work with 2000, but as for backing up the registry, try this site.
Hope this helps,
Charles

Thanks again, but the only problem is that i tried the first meathod you posted above and i doubt it worked, but think it should have.

For the post above, it tells me to type "Regedt32" in the run box, which is no command as far as i am concerned, i tried but failed as expected. I did type "regedit" but couldn't follow since the steps were different.

Thanks for trying to help, i guess i'll have to re-format.


EDIT: Nevermind, I got it. :thumbsup:

Here's How I managed to do it if anyone likes to know, got help from another forum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Inasmuch as the backup function does not appear to effective, I STRONGLY recommend that you no longer use that program. Let's try this:

1. Backup the registry by going to Start>Run> and type ‘regedit’ without the quotes. Once the Registry Editor opens, please do the following:
  • Highlight My Computer
  • From the file menu choose ‘export’ in XP.
  • Choose yourDesktop as the destination
  • Under Export Range, choose "ALL"
  • Use Sysreg as the file name
  • Click Save and EXIT the Registry Editor once the operation is completed
  • To verify that the export was successful, you should see a "blue cube icon" on your desktop named Sysreg.reg
If a restore of the registry is required, just click on the exported regfile which can be found in C:\, and answer YES to the question whether you want to merge this file with the registry. Wait until you get a message saying something like Merge Successful.

2. Launch Notepad, and copy/paste everything in the codebox below into the new document, including the word REGEDIT4. Go up to "File Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" and save it to your desktop as fixme.reg.

3. Locate fixme.reg on your Desktop and double-click on it. You will receive a prompt similar to: "Do you wish to merge the information into the registry?". Answer Yes and wait for a message to appear similar to Merged Successfully.

4. Reboot your computer.

5. Finally, run HijackThis, click SCAN, produce a LOG and POST it in this thread for review.
