When I run the MS registry checker it tells me that there is a problem and that Windows will repair the problem, close down and restart. ME does close down and restarts without a problem, however if you run registry checker again the same message that there is a problem etc comes up. So I end up in a loop.
I suspect that the MS registry checker simply loads the previous version of the registry ( which obviously has the same fault)but makes no attemp to repair the registry. Everything seems to work OK, but I would like to fix the registry. Third party registry utilities are no help as they seem to run the registry checker before doing anything, and the loop starts again.
