Click start then run, type regedit then press enter

See if you have this key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

You click the + next to each of those parts

Post back if you do

Have you got registry protection like Go Back or Tea Timer running? Applications like that may have to be disabled to edit the registry.
