So when i try to play some of my games, it doesnt attomatically open when i put in the CD. I have to go into my computer and click the icon multiple times to get it to load. I get the hourglass as if it is going to load, but after waiting awhile, nothing happens.

Also, some programs that i downloaded offline will not work, same problem, I just bought Registry Mechanic and cannot get it to run anymore. It ran when i first installed it but now i cannot reopen it.

Any help would be GREAT and i hope i posted this in the right forum.

I just bought Registry Mechanic

Very bad idea. Playing with registry is nothing more but asking for troubles.
Uninstall it.

Did you try system restore?

No, if you know better and you insist on using registry tools, so be it...

Well, apparently, you had some prior problems, but by using registry tools you can make things only worse.

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista case).
If sfc won't find any errors in Windows XP, it'll simply quit, without any message.

If you pay for my air ticket, I'll come to help you find it :)
Just kidding...

Seriously, run "sfc" anyway. Even, if you don't have Windows CD, we'll see, if "sfc" will find anything and ask you for a disk.

Well, you'll need to go hunting for a CD. Borrowed one will work.
