Registry problem with Win ME

  Rockhopper Pro 23:49 18 Oct 2003

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.

Have you tried a System Restore back to a time before this problem manifested itself?

Or load ME over its self

Or try this (if you can in ME):
Go to Start > Shutdown, and choose 'Restart the computer in MS-DOS'

At the blinking cursor, type the following commands successively, hitting 'enter' after EACH line:

cd windows\command
scanreg /fix

The Scanreg tool will now proceed to rebuild your registry, which can take some time.

When it finished, type exit or win, followed by hitting 'enter' to return to Windows.
