My Inspiron 1100 Windows XP displays the System Restore, McAfee Installer, and some daughter’s gmail screens as an empty frame.

Just a frame filled with white space.

It happened after I restored the system to a previous state as a part of “fixing” “blue screen of death” which started to come shortly after the boot.
Finally it turned out that the reason was a faulty RAM.

I replaced the RAM, but I’m not able even to restore the system to any previous stage to fix the problem.
The restore screen comes up empty in both normal and safe mode.

Hi xzitin...

Click Start, then Run, type cmd and click "Ok". A command session will open. At the command prompt, type each of the following commands, pressing "Enter" after each one:

regsvr32 jscript

regsvr32 vbscript

regsvr32 /i

exit


Try the System Restore...is it still blank?

Hi wannabe1...

It worked!
Thank you very much!

I was doing the same for crypto .dll s per McAfee recommendations - it did not help.

P.S. regsvr32 /i - system did not like it. What it is?

the /i switch was telling it to install the regsvr32.dll. When it finds it already installed, it tends to not like it.

You should be good to go... :)
