I recently ran Registry Mechanic after deleting a user account. Now nothing works correctly. I can access the Internet but get error messages every where I click. Also, unable to download any files. Can anyone help me?

Do a system restore to a date before using RM.

I did not have system restore point. I did restore from RM and had some luck - today however I am still having strange glitches....?
Ama able to download- but ie keeps reverting to ver6 even though it says I am running ver7. On Microsoft update I continually loop through the install and register loop.

Try this:

Start --> Run. In the box type sfc /scannow Make sure there is a space between the c and the /

Click on okay.

This will check your system files for errors and either repair or replace them. If prompted, insert your Windows XP installation disk. Note: this is not a recovery disk.

Try a free scan at http://safety.live.com/ - you can select only the Registry Cleaner or you can run all of the tests.

FWIW - the regular use of registry cleaners for maintenance can actually hose your system. Here's a thread from another forum about it: http://www.windowsbbs.com/showthread.php?t=61015
