Hey whats up metallica,

i ran the program and tried the specific fix components but the run-time 462 error shows up when ever i hit repair...i'm pretty sure that if the message didn't show up it would have worked.

Can you surf to:
http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

Select the correct language (I guessed yours was english)

Then download and run the file.
Reboot the computer and try again.

Hey metallica,

i thought for sure that would work but when i restarted the computer the same messages came up and when it first started my computer seem that it was actually running a little slower.

Hi Shane,

Somebody who has been working on a similar computer had an idea.

Copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as restrictions.bat
Set Filetype to "All "


Reg Query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Policies" /s >> logit.txt

Reg Query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /s >> logit.txt

Reg Query "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Policies" /s >> logit.txt

Reg Query "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /s >> logit.txt

Start logit.txt


Doubleclick that file and the batch will gather some information and open a textfile.
Can you post the content of that file please?

Oh. That looks promising. :whistling:

The Royal Theme worked before?
For now I will leave it alone unless you have no idea what I'm talking about, then that is our next step.

First, we need to backup your registry:
Please go to Start > Run
Paste in the following line:regedit /e c:\registrybackup.reg
Click OK.
It won't appear to be doing anything, that's normal.
Your mouse pointer may turn to an hour glass for a minute.
Please continue when it no longer has the hour glass.

Then copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as taskbar.reg
Set Filetype to "All Files"


REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSetTaskbar"=-
"NoToolbarsOnTaskbar"=-
"NoSaveSettings"=-


Doubleclick the file you made and confirm you want to merge it with the registry.
If your taskbar doesn't "pop up" it may require a reboot to take effect.

hey metallica,

i tried everything that u told me to do...but sadly that also didn't work. Do you think that it has to do with the run-time error or the registerclassobjects failed messages?

I do appreciate all the hard work that u are putting into this and just wanted to say thank you

No problem Shane,

I'm just as curious as you are and my arsenal isn't empty by far. :whistling:

1. Download this file - combofix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Please post the combofix log.

At least that gave me a decent idea where Seekmo and Viewpoint came from:
* cough* Azureus * cough*

I'm gonna try something daring.
In case this backfies use the backup of the regsitry we made.

Copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as policeme.reg
Set Filetype to "all files"

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer]



Doubleclick that file and confirm you want to merge it with the registry.

Reboot after the confirmation.
