If you have installed Windows XP home or pro with any sirvice pack,vista with any version,follow these instructions:Method 1: Remove the registry entry
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

In other words,if you just got a different v. of windows,and the disk drive is missing so you can't listen to cd's or install games etc. [you know that sucks],follow these simple instructions.


1.click start then run,type in registry editor [regedit] , click Edit,go down to Find,click,type in upperfilters then click FindNext

2.once it's done searching you should see upperfilters on the details box,delete it,rest assured this is a goo thing :trumpet: not a bad thing :flowers:
then look for Lowerfilters
find it,delete it :inlove:

3. Restart your computer.


That should do it,if not,complaints are NOT accepted! :thumbsup:
