# Solved: Missing/Invalid Registry Paths

Q: Solved: Missing/Invalid Registry Paths

Hey Guys, I have a program to clean the registry and when i do a scan it comes up with heaps of missing or invalid path errors but once I click cleanup it fixes them all but then if I do it again the next day I have a lot again..I'm just wondering if these are something to worry about? Or do they just come about from deleting files and are no problem?

Thanks.

A: Solved: Missing/Invalid Registry Paths

Usually registries are left over when you uninstall programs that don't completely remove the program registries. If it isn't affecting your overall performance, it shouldn't be a big deal.

Acer Aspire M1100 AM1100-E1402A
Mfg Date 2008\03\07

It was running OK, but getting a bit old and a bit slow. I upgraded to a W7 desktop, but wanted to keep this one playing around with.

Ran System Recovery 2 or 3 times using the Alt-F10 method. First time, I wanted to avoid loading bloatware so ran msconfig early on, went to Startup to uncheck Acer Launch and stuff like that. Windows Update worked until SP1. Just couldn't get SP1 to install, including when I downloaded it from the web.

Then I ran System Recovery and let the bloatware run. It stalled at 9/11. Again, Windows Update worked until SP1.

Then I tried System Recovery using discs, instead of Alt-F10. It failed for some reason. I have a couple other System Recovery discs from an laptop and an eMachine laptop. I tried them with the same result. Recovery starts, writes over the C drive, then fails.

The message is:
The system registry contains invalid file paths. Installation cannot proceed. This system image was applied without guaranteeing that drive-letter assignments would match across computers.

So now I'm stuck.

I googled the error message, but generally ended up in discussion boards that are over my head. I think I saw some discussion about partition. I have a foggy memory that this desktop may have arrived with the HDD partitioned into something like 120 and 200 GB partitions. I think I removed the partition. I wonder if this has contributed to the problem? Then... Read more

A:Vista System Recovery failure - "system registry contains invalid file paths" - canno

The vista image extracts to the temporary drive letter D.

If you use a regular installation dvd and MS standard setup.exe, it will fix the os registry letter correctly. (Defaults to the first letter i.e. C as A and B are reserved for floppies )

If you are trying to restore from a factory image, you will have trouble because there is now another os on the machine.

I have a script I use for it.

You could get it to work , but it is a lot of mucking around.

It is just easier to use a Vista install dvd ( not the same as your factory recovery image ), boot it up, and install to your desired partition.

I've used Adobe's Framemaker 8.x for several years on a Dell Inspiron running Vista Home Premium. Lately, when I try to open the program I get the message "Registry information invalid or missing."

I tried all the things in Adobe's knowledge base, to no avail.

I tried disabling everything except the FrameMaker program; still didn't work.

I would like to re-install and start over. However, I purchased it as a download and I copied the information they sent me to a backup disk. That disk has on,y "repair" "modify" or "uninstall" as choices. I choose "repair" or "modify" and then Framemaker will open.

Does anybody know how to fix the registry editor? I downloaded and used Registry Mechanic, but that didn't work.

From what I read, I don't want to be messing in the registry unless I really know what I'm doing!

Thanks,

I use WinAso Registry Optimizer; when I run it my computer crashes when it gets to Invalid File Paths, but when I remove the invalid file paths flag, it completes the process just fine. I would like some advice on correcting invalid file paths...thanks.

A:Invalid File Paths

Don't use registry cleaners. If you continue to use them, chances are that crashes will be among the least of your problems. Those things are junk, do only harm, and you should be thankful you were even able to reboot. Performance is not improved by using them, they remove needed entries, and they create their own "errors" so that they can "fix" them, making worse errors in the process.

Do yourself a favor, and if a registry cleaner offers to do something you don't understand, decline. It's far easier to clean the system to death than to actually fix something with a registry cleaner.

Hi,

I am also facing a similiar issue, like given in the thread - Cannot delete shortcut file

I cant deleted some invalid paths and shortcuts in the system....
Here when I open any application and try to insert or open a file for that application, I am facing the problem.

For Example,
In VLC Player, I click on Media --> Open File

This gives you the Box to select the file you want and in the bottom of that small window in the " File name " box, you will be having a drop down box to select the file.
Here all the deleted files are listed with the file name and path, which was deleted months ago...
When you select the file it says, "Path does not exist, try again"
So, I think all the invalid shortcuts are stored some where in the system, which displays there.
So we need to deleted that particular cache.
I found out that there is something called " Indexed Cache " in Vista, which saves all the shortcuts as the files are stored.
I need to find out how to delete the file shortcuts from that location.

Similiar issue is there in Outlook 2007, when I compose a new message and insert file.
It gives the drop down box like the above issue with all the deleted files path.

I tried rebuilding the Indexing Options as advised before.
It didnt work.
I performed all the basic steps, like deleting cookies,temp files from system,ran chkdsk,disk cleanup, and also used some popular and unpopular cleaning software and nothing worked.

A:Unable to delete invalid shortcuts and paths of deleted files.

You are talking about most reciently used files.
This can be deleted in the disk cleanup.
Hope this helps.

Hiyas

Here's my story. I've just managed to change a systems boot letter from E:\ to C:\. The machine is working fine now, but all the programs that were installed are still looking in E:\ which no longer exsists. I've gone through and changed a few of these paths manually, but after an hour of that i realised it'll take far too long to do it this way.

What i'm looking for is a tool to look through the registry and replace all instances of "E:\" with "C:\". Does anyone know if such a product is available? It's be a great help.

I guess this may be a tiny bit off the subject here, but I am attempting this in windows 7.

I have a program file manager tool called 'Directory Opus' that is capable of calling windows external programs and passing them the current directory the file manager is sitting on.

So far so good.

Now I want to call a cygwin (linux/unix emulator for windows) terminal with that file manager.

Checking properties on the cygwin Icon I got the path: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

So it is a path to a command and an argument to that command.

Actually I guess it is 2 arguments to a command since I think '-' in that position means to feed anything on STDIN to the command. At least that would be true in unix shell programming.

So using the Directory opus setup I pass this call:
[email protected]:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - <and here add {s}>'

So the call ends up:
[email protected]:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - {s}'

That call does just what it is supposed to. It passed the current file absolute address however cygwin terminal does not understand the windows path notation. If I were passing it: C:\subdir\blah\ It would just say 'No such file' Cygwin terminal wants to see /cygdrive/c/subdir/blah Or at least I think that is what is happing.

So to cut to the chase.... I'd like to put a little wrapper to Cygwin terminal in there with the code necessary to convert 'C:\subdir\blah\' to '/cygdrive/c/subdir/blah/'

But, I do not know how ... Read more

I have a computer where the DHCP service will not start due to a missing dependent service.  I did some digging and found that the NetBT.sys file was missing, as well as the related Registry keys and the NetBIOS over TCP/IP service in Device Manager.
I tried copying the NetBT.sys file over from a known good XP SP3 machine, but before I went any further, I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.  Can someone offer some suggestions to fix this without having to reload XP?

Thanks,

A:NetBT.sys missing, registry entries missing, and NetBIOS over TCP/IP service missing from Device Manager

I am missing that registry key, what do I need to do in order to put it in?

I was going to follow that path (to ShellNew) and then create a new key called Command. But from there what do I have to create in that directory? Is it a key, DWORD or what?

I assume I then have to put the thing in the box below as the value.

Hello all,

Hope you are well. I was... until I tried to upgrade my itunes to the latest version and it decided to go a bit crazy on me. Basically I had an old version of itunes (6) where everything worked as it should, but have just got a iphone, so wanted to upgrade to the latest itunes. But now everytime I try and start it I get this message:

Warning! The registry used by theitunesdrivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall itunes.

I have tried to research and look for help, following the information given on the apple forum:

and also here on an earlier thread:

but nothing has worked so far. The only thing I haven't followed on these threads is the advice to
'Delete SPTD.SYS from the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers folder.' etc instructions as I don't think I have daemon tools on this PC, unless they snuck in the back door somewhere). Should I do that anyway?

I also don't have any other 'cd-burning software' - the PC originally came with a programme called Record Now, but there hasn't been a problem with that before.

I'm not that technical, and don't know why itunes now cannot recognise audio cds or burn anything. I would be very grateful if anyone can offer some advi... Read more

When i run norton win doctor it reports that the key, "CLSDID\{117A62F-05D2-11D1-83FC-00A0C9089C5A}\InprocServer32" refers to a missing file, "C\WINDOWS|system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash6.ocx." None of the repair options work in Norton Win Doctor. I can not delete the key from my registry. I have searched for the folder "Macromed" on my hard drive but it is not found. From what I can tell this is an old version of the Adobe Flash Player. Any ideas as to how I can fix/remove this key. Im simply a yard man and out of ideas.

I have been having some malware issues, and received phenomenal help from one of the members (Eddie5659) in that forum. I am now clear of malware, but still having a sound issue. I can hear sounds when I play a file that is hosted on the computer, like itunes, etc., and can hear all the test sounds in the directx sound tester. When I try to play a video on google, youtube, etc, there is no sound.. I do not have any system sounds either.

I think it is related to missing registry files. When I run regedit on my wifes computer, or my laptop, in the drivers32 file are multiple entries, including midimapper and wavemapper. when I run regedit on my computer, in the drivers32 file ther eis only one entry titled "default" and no value set for it. Don't worry, I have never done anything other then look with regedit, since I don't really know what a registry is.

I have searched online for 2 weeks without luck for a fix for this.

any help would be appreciated.

Hello all. Preemptive thanks to whomever may end up helping me.

I recently decided to try and clean my hard drive up a little bit and deleted a few old unused programs using Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs. Mostly old video games and the like. After rebooting I seem to have deleted something more important, as I am now prompted at Desktop Initialization with this error message.

.NET Framework Initialization Error
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\InstallRoot to point
to the .NET Framework install location

It also pops up when trying to run certain applications, like Borderlands 2 or XCOM Enemy Within. I've only encountered it with these games but I'm sure there are other non-game applications that will give me this prompt down the road too.

Control Panel tells me that I currently have .NET Framework 4.5.1 installed, and I'm running Windows 7 so I believe that means that .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5 are also baked into the OS delivery.

Running CCleaners registry scan tool shows 12 Missing Shared DLL's in the C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705 folder under the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDlls keys.

I've tried repairing the 4.5.1 install via the Control Panel command, and also tried running the .NET Framework Repair Tool provided by Microsoft. Neither attempts have helped. I was about to try Step 3 and 4 listed here at Aaron Stebner's WebLog for diagnosing and correcting .NET Framewor... Read more

I can't change my wallpaper, although, I can make it different block colours.

I've tried alot of things to solve this, but I think I've come to a conclusion - That I am missing registries for the desktop and wallpaper.

Is there any place where I can download the basic Windows XP SP2 Registry?
Without it removing any other registries eg. For games or other programs.

Just the standard that fills in any missing or corrupt .reg files...

I'm sure this is the problem, but I can't find anywhere to download these files.

Also, putting them in manually seems to mess things up and just so you know, I've created a restore point.

It'd be good if I just got the wallpaper files, thanks.

Example:
'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System'

And everything that comes with it is missing, so are a few others like:

Hello. I recently installed Outlook 2003 (for the purpose of having an address book that can be synced with an iPhone). I understood that it would show up in iTunes as one of the programs listed for syncing. It does not.

As I did some research, it was suggested that I go to my Internet Options > Programs to set Outlook as the default mail, calendar, contacts handler. The only problem is that Oultook is not listed there! Outlook Express is, but no Outlook.

As I poked around a bit more, it seems that the issue is that the Outlook is not properly in the registry. I have only a vague sense of what that means and do not know how to fix the problem -- if in fact that is the problem.

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Whenever I run Norton Utilities on my 500mhz/win98SE/ I always get " invalid active X/com entry ........" medium degree of problem and is always repaired. Is it possible to fix the problem permanently?
Missing or invalid subkey entry details "the key, "CLSID\{FFD709FO-AF39-11D2-B854-0000F81E8872}"refers to"CLSID\{FFD709FO-AF39-11D2-B854-0000F81E8872}"

A:invalid registry entry

I wouldn't worry about that too much.

Unless you're experiencing problems of one kind or another that you might be able to attribute to this, just tell Win Doctor to ignore this one.

Good luck,

The longer I use Explorer the slower it gets until it sometimes freezes. I subsequently use Symantec Norton Windoctor to run a system scan
it comes up with

" Invalid ActiveX/COM registry"

Repairing the problem using Windoctor produces the message below.

The key, "AtWorkRendering\shell\PrintTo\command," refers to an invalid command entry, "C:\Documents and Settings\Costa\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\0."

Was fixed with the scanner that:

Fixes invalid Registry entry with "C:\Documents and Settings\Costa\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\0," file version: N/A.

Any thoughts on how to permenantly resolve this problem

My Mom has Word 97 on her comjputer and recentrly everytime she goes to use it she gets the message the windows registry has reported that one or more of the required files are damaged or missing, and advises to reinstall from the Word CD.

I have tried reinstalling however it gets to the place where it says checking for installed components and it simplly sits there and nothing else happens.

I have tried uninstalling it however it asks for the Word CD and when I put the Office CD in the drive it says it is the wrong disk.

I have tried reinstalling to a different folder however have the same problem with it hanging.

I tried a forced uninstall using Unistaller Pro however even though Word no longer shows in the list in the add remove software list, it still sees it when trying to reinstall and asks if you want to upgrade or install in a different directory. No matter what I choose it always hangs at the same place.

I tried installing Office 2003 however does the exact same thing and hangs in the exact same spot.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

HELP!

Old problem. jscripb and vbscript need to be registered. XP Home 2002 version sp2 machine, virus and spyware free. Now I have to fix it!

Again, as per microsoft support kb 831430 Method 1 tried Run/msconfig/regsvr32 jscript.dll, etc doesn't work. Registering fails. Error 0x800004005. Even booted in safe mode so I could be THE administrator (as opposed to the computer administrator my user profile is already) and I got the same message. Tried the second way to register this with msconfig and expanding a file. I had tried this second part of Method 1 before and I think it might have worked, but when it came to registering the dll's, same error 0x800004005. So that failed.

I can access both dll's off the XP disc using explorer, but don't know what to do with them!

Got the nerve to try Method 2 of the kb 831430. Navigated to where the registry key should be and no key. no HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SOFTWARE/CLASSES/CLSID/{f414c........

Norton System Works uncovered nine (9) invalid entries in the ActiveX/COM sections of my Windows Registry.

The nine affected keys:

AWFile\Defaultcom, COLFile\Defaultcom, ELMFile\Defaultcom, FFAFile\Defaultcom, FFLFile\Defaultcom, FFTFile\Defaultcom, FFXFile\Defaultcom, DPCFile\Defaultcom and STFFile\Defaultcom.

The nine keys all refer to a missing icon:

C:\Program Files\Support.com\backup\mi\misc.exe,6

I cannot find "misc.exe,6" either in the "mi" folder, or anywhere on the computer. Can anyone help me get this file?

Also, it is the first time I have ever seen the extension ".exe,6" or anything similar? Has anyone seen this extension?

A:Invalid ActiveX/COM Registry Entries

There should not be ANY directory support.com.
That would be part of a virus/trojan/other nasty.
The exe,6 points to the 6th icon within that exe-file.

That file misc.exe in your reference is with 99.9% certainty NOT the official MS file.

I have a couple of problems with Win2k. Not sure if they are related. Occassionally I get an error message that says the following:

d:\Docume~1\Ran\Desktop|Shortc~1.PIF System\Current\Controller\Virtual\Device Drivers. VDD. Virtual Device Driver in the registry is invalid. Choose 'close' to terminate the application.

The most recent instance of this message was when I clicked on the dos prompt in Win2k.

The other problem I am having is that when I choose the "restart" option instead of shutting down in Win2k, Win2k doesn't restart. The monitor shuts off, but not the power to the monitor. I end up doing a hard reboot to get the computer to return to Win2k desktop.
Also, when choosing the "shut down option" instead of 'restart', the monitor shuts off, but not the power to the monitor and the hard drive doesn't appear to shut off and won't respond at all to me pressing the on and off switch. I end up shutting the hard drive off with the surge protector after I have turned the monitor off.

I do not have any screen savers turned on nor any green functions. And have my power management set to "desktop status".

System is not prompting me to run scandisk at startup.

Any idea what is causing any of this?

How do you know they are invalid? Be very careful about deleting keys. Even the best registry cleaning programs make a lot of mistakes.

Duplicate entries, such as entries in the Control Sets or in HKCU and HKLM are normal and needed.

Hi all,

Does anyone know where the registry entry for the startup items in Task Manager are?

I have a couple there that don't exist anymore. They are set to disabled but I'd like to remove them completely from the list.

A:Registry entry for invalid startup items

One way is to download "autoruns" and delete the entires from there. Autoruns is portable and free. Just download, unzip and run as admin and it will show you those entries which can be deleted from within. Please do not touch anything else unless you understand the consequences. The ones you would recognize would be under the Logon Tab:

Okay, so this morning I turned on my desktop computer, and I got a blue screen with an error message. I don't know why this happened, yesterday it was working fine. Here's part of the message:

STOP: c0000218 {Registry file failure} the registry cannot load the hive (file): \systemRoot\System32\config\sam

I rebooted my computer, and it said something about turning off wrong, and gave me options to either boot into safe mode, restart normally, or restart at the time that worked normally. All of them lead to the same error mesage with the blue screen.

I did a little research on this error, and found a microsoft help page about it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
Instead of using the recovery console from the CD, I used my computer's recovery console (everytime I reboot, it gives me an option to go into the recovery console or continue normally, so I entered that recovery console, thinking it was the same as the CD's recovery console...) I followed the steps listed, typing in all of these:

copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak

Place the cd in the drive then shut down the computer. As you are booting up the computer tap f8 to select the boot menu, select the cd drive. It should boot to a screen that has a few options the best of which (if no data is important to you) is to format the hard drive and do a clean install. However if you would like to try and fix the current installation you will chose repair install.

A:C cleaner finds invalid or empty files in registry scan

While those are completely benign items and no harm will come from deleting them, DO NOT USE REGISTRY CLEANERS. Just ignore what ccleaner found and don't bother to scan again. So called registry cleaners cause problems, they do not cure or fix anything.

i'm sending this out from my iphone, so please excuse the format and lack of capital letters ;-)
i got a new hp pavilion laptop; os is windows 7 home premium 64-bit. when i booted it up the first time, there was already an administrator account on it, bearing the name of the company who had sent me the laptop. i renamed the user account and the computer to my name; but the paths connected to the user profile and the user profile itself (under "users" on the c drive) still have the old name. i did some reading and it seems that one has to rename the account back to the old name, then create a new administrator account with the name one wants and transfer the profile from the old account to the new one, then delete the old account if everything is working well; however, i believe that these instructions are rather for windows xp than for windows 7, and i have no idea how to copy a profile. i am not a computer geek and cannot fiddle around with the registry, and i'm new to windows 7. so: how can i rename the profile paths and my profile folder to MY name - or is it impossible to change, and will i just have to live with it? i also hope that if the situation cannot be changed, then this is simply a cosmetic 'bug' and won't cause any problems.

Hello,

I've got a new computer with win7 ultimate 64 bit and recently I tried to run a program and ended up with an error message: Component 'msinet.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

I tried to fix it myself by using compabilitys and even a virtual machine but I ended up having the same problem. After I googled it I tried downloading a directx and msinet.ocx and placing it in sys32 though that didn't work either, perhaps because those solutions where for xp?

So I really hope someone here knows how to fix this.

Thanks!

Go to Start and type "cmd" (without the quotes)
Then right click on the cmd.exe at the top of the Search box and select "Run as administrator"
Type "regsvr32 msinet.ocx" and press Enter.

If you get an error message, I'd have to wonder if this program is compatible with the version of Windows that you're using. When I tried to register it on my system it said it was missing also.

Hi,
I'm writing because my computer had a serious Trojan case. Actually, I am using my other computer, because although I seem to have gotten ridden of the Trojan with Simply Super Softwares Trojan Remover, it didn't fix the computer as such. The computer says all the time that a handle is invalid and doesn't let me do even the simplest tasks as opening Windows Explorer or looking at the System for Driver Signings etc. It seems to be sort of deepening - if I start the computer, then it lets me do a few things and then starts saying, that handle is missing. So I could check out the hardware settings and saw, that everything that has to do with anti-virus and internet, is down - drivers are missing, the computer will not let me go into internet either. I am quite perplexed and don't know where could I even get nearer to the problem... I thik the Trojan destroyed lots of dll files, as they are missing - each time I try to start something, then the computer says that either a handle or dll file is missing. Or both.
My op system is Windows XP.

Switch on this morning to get NTLDR is missing error.

Pressing F10 to recover says Invalid System Disc or I/O error.

I've tried the recovery console but any repair commands (FIXBOOT, CHKDSK, BOOTCFG) just say invalid disc or missing windows installation etc.

Have I lost everything?

A:NTLDR missing / invalid system disc

Check you BIOS start order isn't changed to boot from the Cd-Rom
first then the hard disk.

Also check the hard disk for errors in Recovery Console using
chkdsk /f.

Good Luck.

I ran Norton's WinDoctor and got this error message- Missing or Invalid Key. "AtWorkRendering\shell\PrintTo\command" I attempted to let Norton's repair it, but it did not. It gave me other options including removing the invalid key, but I dont want to do the wrong thing. It also tells me that this is of MEDIUM severity and can even cause my computer to crash. Please tell me what to do. Thank you, Kathy

Hi. I've been having issues with popups and performance lately and my AVG and MBAM scans weren't finding anything so I tried booting into safe mode and scanning that way. Much to my dismay I found that in the middle of loading the partitions the computer would reset and I would get a black screen telling me that safe mode failed to boot and that I should try loading windows normally.

I opened up my regedit and low and behold, the SAFEBOOT subfolder is missing entirely. I'm not really comfortable poking around in the registry, the only experience I have with it is looking around. I really kinda need to have safe mode, but my computer didn't come with a cd that I've seen mention of for fixing this kind of thing. Is there a way I can just manually restore the missing registry keys by typing in the necessary information?

In addition, I noticed a few keys which don't seem like they are supposed to be there, I searched them in search engines but with no results. I've included the key and the information that comes up on the little side-panel when I click on the key in question.

Any suggestions on how to recover my raid array or any of my files?

OS is windows Vista, the RAID is configured as a 10 (Mirrored/Striped) with 4 WD SATA 250GB hard drives,
mb is ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, Silicon controller in use, NVidia controller not in use.

Rebooted machine, and received the following error:

No valide deivce!...press any key to continue

(yes the spelling is like that on screen...)

Then I get: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

Tried rebooting a couple of times but no change. Ran the WD tools on the disks, "no problems".

If I do a Ctrl-S to enter the SiL-3114 (Silicon Image Controller) Bios,

it shows the 4 drives under Physical Drive but under Logical Drive it says "Invalid Raid drive".

If I click "Create Raid set it comes back with "Not enough single drives to create Raid set".

If I select ?Resolve Conflicts?, it says no conflicts exist.

So now I purchased 2 additional Wd 250GB Drives identical to the other 4.

In addition maybe for troubleshooting, I have another computer that can run 2 drive raid sets.

I am not sure which direction I want to proceed to recover either my disk array or my files

without causing more damage to the posibility of recovering my files!

http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cach...o+valide+deivce!...&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=10&gl=ca

Have you checked the Asus Bios to see that the Silicon Image Raid is activated - Asus boards have that 'Crash Free' feature where, under static shock and other conditions, they reset to defaults.

I have just restored my pc's factory settins, so everything has been wiped.

I have not loaded any programs or software on to the pc, except one game I am trying to use.

The program works fine on my laptop and I get no error messages. But when I try and open the program on my pc I get the following message:

"Compenent "MSINET.OCX"or of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid."

I have downloaded the "MSINET.OCX" file and I have put it in the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32"

I then type RegSvr32 msinet.ocx in the Start/Run, it the say the registration is successful.

I try to open the game again the error message still comes up.

I have tried another method of trying to register the, "MSINET.OCX" file

by downloading the MSINET.OCX file with another file, putting them in the same folder and clicking install. This also does not fix the problem.

I have tried it on both windows XP Home and Windows XP Proffessional but still get the message.

Hi I currently switched over to Windows 7 64bit. I'm trying to install a software program but i keep getting "component richtx32.ocx or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid" Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

A:component richtx32.ocx or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid?

Hello,
I would like to confirm that what program did you install when you encountered the issue. Make sure the software is suitable and compatible for Windows 7 (64-bit).Check its compatibility:  http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx
Based on my research, if the software ,that was released without sufficient runtime files, may gives you Error 339 stating file missing error, such as"RICHTX32.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file missing or invalid.", which need this file should be upgraded to work with Windows 7.You will need to download RICHTX32.CAB and unzip the archive and extract the file RichTx32.ocx to the X:Windows\System64 folder.(X partition is the system boot partition.)If you still receive the error, register the RichTx32.ocx module using the following command (from Start, Run dialog):regsvr32.exe %systemroot%\system64\RICHTX32.OCXYou should see the message DllRegisterServer in X:\WINDOWS\system32\RICHTX32.OCX succeeded. after running the above command.
Do you have visual basic installed? If so, follow these directions to Reinstall/upgrade visual basic and the problem should go away. Visual basic 6 sp 6, with the latest security updates (currently spring 2009) can be found at Service Pack 6 for Visual Basic 6.0: Run-Time Redistribution Pack (vbrun60sp6.exe)

I get the following pop up every morning when I start my computer:

Line: 1
Char: 78
Error: Invalid root in registry key
HKCU\software\pdqg\ysssfcv
Code: 0
URL:

This is followed by a notepad with a log and I have to exit twice before the popups stop. I also get warnings that Acrobat cannot finish its update. This has been going on for a few months. In addition, my keyboard will delay typing 5-10 seconds or type multiples of the same letter. This makes Copy and Paste functions very difficult to do. I change my batteries in the wireless keyboard often to rule that out. I am not very tech savvy but try my best and can usually figure my way out of a problem, but this one has stumped me. At the end of each day I run CCleaner and usually have 5-600 GB that is cleared up. I then restart the computer and don't turn it off so that our server can run its backup. I do notice that if I don't do CCleaner my computer is extra sluggish.

I have the latest version of Firefox (computer runs on Windows XP Home with latest patches and service packs). I'm having problems with my Google toolbar and my booksmarks toolbar. They function just fine. Now, when I right-click, then I can choose which toolbars can be displayed or not. I encounter the following problem. If I don't want Google toolbar to be displayed, the bookmarks toolbar vanish. And if I turn off the bookmarks toolbar, Google vanishes. So obviously, there's a confusion between the toolbar-paths. De-installing Google toolbar and re-installing didn't help. How can I correct this problem?

an easy fix hopefully...
the error is short and annoying.

( registry editor )
How do I reactivate these kinds of features from the control panel?

don't worry, I have administrative rights, Im in the proccess of removing malware and what not, and this must have been turned off at some point.
I have a number of programs already installed and it might be them.
I think I removed a registration cleaner, but I could be wrong I'll try and clean that out for sure.
thats about all know about the situation still trying to resolve other issues but they dont pertain right now, i'll probably post them in another part of the forums.

but obviously if Ive overlooked something important, please let me know and I'll do what ever is needed.

Apparently it is my turn: Photos app no longer launches (clicking on the icon does nothing; no error report in Event Log). Trying to double-click image files associated with Photos results in "Invalid Value for Registry" message box. No explanation as to for what value is "invalid" and why it is "invalid".

It appears that the damage is user-account-specific, meaning that Photos typically continue to work fine under different (undamaged) user accounts. So, the only known solution appears to be to create a new user account and set it up from scratch.

Considering that setting up a new account requires quite an effort, this is not a real solution but more of a last resort "loser's way out" kind of measure. Hence the question: did anyone ever come across any additional information/research about this error? What specific "registry value" is responsible for this problem? I see quite a few reports about this error on the Net, but most of them seem to settle with creating a new account.

A:Photos: "Invalid Value for Registry"

Hi, understand.. can't directly point you to a specific registry entry, but this may be of interest for comparison- I used Nirsoft's FileTypesman. (The Userchoice field = AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc)

I'll assume you've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, reregistering the app.

Can confirm jpg's open with Photo app.

Are you able to associate (e.g.) jpg's with any other program?
Of course, it may not be an association related registry entry...

I've been trying to fix a laptop for a while and I felt this was the point to ask for help. I can't seem to find the solution online anywhere. The initial problem was that the computer would immediately log out after logging in. The wallpaper would briefly flash and then it would instantly log off. I did some searching and it appeared that this was usually caused by a registry value being changed by some sort of malware.

This website pretty well summarized what was going on: http://www.paulscomputerservice.net/...autoLogoff.php

I created my BartPE disc and ran the registry editor. I navigated to the place it said the value needing to be edited was, "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", and there was no winlogon key. I'm running Windows XP so I immediately noticed the WindowsNT but I'm not sure if that would make a difference. Do I need to replace it somehow? Is it located elsewhere?

Any ideas?

Ok..Here goes. I'm not sure where this post belongs, but I'm putting it here.

I did not know I had an issue until I tried to play a game. The game did not load correctly, which gave it away. I never have a problem with that, so it's not the game.

The last time something like this happened, I just rolled my PC back to the previous point, scannned and that was the end of it; but not this time. When I tried to roll it back I discovered I had no restore points.

What I usually do is do a quick clean of my system before I play Company of Heroes, then shut Trend off; but this time I forgot to do the clean, and just shut it down. Then today I noticed it did not load right after several times trying, and reboots...
I have done quick cleans and deep scans, but it shows nothing.

I have also recently began to use iolo system mechanic, and I have read that that will affect the registry, and restore points.

Should I continue to use the system mechanic if this is the case?

Here is my HJT scan...

A:Registry points missing

I'm moving you to the Vista forum.

System Mechanic may well be responsible for many of your problems. It has damaged many systems and there is another thread going about trying to recover from its damage. Sometimes, reinstalling Windows from scratch and all your programs is the only way out. All registry cleaners do damage. System Mechanic is among the worst. It is not "S & M" for nothing.

I haven't examined your log. If someone sees that you have some sort of infection, you may get moved back to Malware. But for now, this seems like a Vista problem.

The problem is that it will not install now, as there's something amiss within the Registry. All is well with the computer and the file system is intact. I simply need to use multiple Google accts. to play the game effectively, and to use multiple accts. on Facebook is a violation of Terms.
