Hello

Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
    http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe



Now we need to fix your problems by making a .reg file. Copy the code below into a Notepad file. Name the file as fix.reg, change the "Save as Type" to "All files" and save it on the desktop.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons]


Then double click on the fix.reg file, when it prompts to merge click "Yes".



Reboot and tell me how your PC is running

Do this

Run DSS again, using these instructions:

Click START> Run - then copy the following bold blue text and paste it into the Run box & click OK

"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daft

Read the disclaimer and click OK.

Click on Scan.

Place a checkmark next to the entries displayed when the scan is finished then Click on Fix.

Repeat the scan; you should get a message "All Associations OK!"

Next, click Save Log, and post this log in your next reply.


Then reboot, and try that again

Hi
I don't seem to have DSS.EXE - I don't think we ran this before.

Sorry

Do this

Please download DAFT and save it to your desktop:
  • Double-click the daft.exe icon.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • Select everything it is displaying there
  • Click the Fix button.
  • Then rescan with DAFT again - it should say now that "All associations are OK"
  • Close DAFT if you receive that message. This means that it is fixed now.



Then reboot and try the registry fix again
