My daughter's computer running XP professional 64 bit has started showing the following on startup :- No startup URL for download. But she is not trying to download anything. Tried to do a system restore but that has stopped working saying it cannot restore no matter which restore point we try. Anyone any ideas please
PS the Message is most likely generated by the Registry, Try to make a note of exact words of message as you can do a search of the registry and delete it. Its easy to do as long as you get the message correctly
Download Ccleaner. A good search engine will find it. Piriform. Make sure you have records of all of your log in passwords then close any browsers. Run Ccleaner in it's default state. Then run the registry cleaner using the registry link to the left. Reboot the PC and see if you get the message again.
The exact message is:- No startup URL for Download tried misconfig not sure what I'm looking for but there is nothing which says that. typed the message into search box but it didn't find it. Is there some special way to search the Registry or is this right. Ran Ccleaner in default and registry modes it deleted some things but message is still present
For Registry Go to run and Type Regedit press enter the go to Menu under Edit is the search box type in the box. No startup URL for Download. Before you do the bit below click on the My Computer ICON in Left column, so it starts at the top then Press enter key. to go to next in Regedit press F3 delete each time it finds it until it gets to the end. Do not mess with anything ells in Regedit or your computer may not work after
